Renegotiating the Social Contract, New York City

In-Person Event | New York City
Wednesday November 8, 2023
6:00pm – 9:00pm ET


Location information will be provided in a separate email once your registration has been confirmed.

A social contract outlines the rights and duties of individuals within a society. In America, our constitution explicitly defines some of these rights, while others, more implicit, evolve over time. As we navigate a period of rapid technological and societal change, it is important to examine and understand the current state of our societal ties. How has American society, our government, our relationships with each other, and our responsibilities as citizens changed over time? What are we excited about? What are we concerned about?
Join us as we learn from the work of fellow leaders and discuss the current state of our social contract: what’s working in our society, what’s not, and how we might steer towards a brighter future for all.
Light bites and refreshments will be provided.
