A Conversation with Mayor Rahm Emanuel
Thursday, February 27, 2014, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC
Under Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s leadership, Chicago has continued its rise as a city known for policy innovation and action. On Thursday, February 27, the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings will host a conversation with Mayor Emanuel.
The mayor will talk about a broad range of issues, including Chicago’s newly announced Digital Manufacturing and Design lab and strategies to improve neighborhood schools, reduce youth violence, and rebuild infrastructure. Each of these investments brings together neighborhood anchor institutions, the private sector, and government partners to invest in the city’s research capabilities, workforce development initiatives, education institutions, and job creation efforts.
Amy Liu, co-director of the Metropolitan Policy Program, will open the program and introduce the mayor. The conversation will be moderated by The New York Times columnist David Brooks, after which Mayor Emanuel will take questions from the audience.
