Where MPAs share ideas and accomplishments in 15-minute presentations followed by discussion
- Lena Geraghty '15 and Eric Reese '15 Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Government Excellence helps governments use data to make informed, effective decisions and improve people’s quality of life. Senior implementation advisors at GovEx, Lena Geraghty and Eric Reese will share their experiences working with local governments in the US and internationally through Bloomberg Philanthropies’ What Works Cities initiative. They will discuss changes in data management and performance and analytics, including recommendations on how to stay up-to-date with public administration trends.
- Thomas Mirc '17 (or '18), will address "The Rural American Job Revolution You Know Nothing About." The perception that technology jobs have been offshored by American companies for decades is still commonly shared. But a movement to create high-paying US jobs has occurred over the past decade in some unlikely places.
- Ebony Perkins '13 will talk about her effort to launch The Philanthropist Next Door. In establishing The Philanthropist Next Door, Perkins sought to give the average citizen the same kind of resources that companies rely on to inform their philanthropy efforts. Using her background in nonprofit development, her endeavor offers support to individuals who wish to direct their contributions in smart and impactful ways.
