Solutions For America

Solutions for America is an initiative where Thought Leadership is used to address some of America’s most pressing challenges.  Members choose a problem or issues they want to engage in and provide thought leadership around a strategy towards solutions. An impact committee is formed and members work to craft a perspective on a possible solution. The white papers or decks created are then shared with significant civic leaders, including senators, members of congress and mayors who engage in conversations with us to expand their own learning and thinking on the subject matter.   Members may also participate in follow up education or feedback with leaders as valuable solutions strategies are formed.
