ISABELLE SAWHILL, THE FORGOTTEN AMERICANS: AN ECONOMIC AGENDA FOR A DIVIDED NATION
Wednesday, July 25th @ BWML 7PM
An evening with one of the country’s leading scholars on economics and social policy discussing her current research and forthcoming book, The Forgotten Americans.
Isabel Sawhill addresses the enormous divisions in American society—economic, cultural, and political—and what might be done to bridge them. Widening inequality and the loss of jobs to trade and technology has left a significant portion of the American workforce disenfranchised and skeptical of governments and corporations alike. And yet both have a role to play in improving the country for all.
Sawhill argues for a policy agenda based on mainstream values, such as family, education, and work. While many have lost faith in government programs designed to help them, there are still trusted institutions on both the local and federal level that can deliver better job opportunities and higher wages to those who have been left behind. At the same time, the private sector needs to reexamine how it trains and rewards employees. This book provides a clear-headed and middle-way path to a better-functioning society in which personal responsibility is honored and inclusive capitalism and more broadly shared growth are once more the norm.
KELLY ROBBINS, TRUST YOUR NEXT STEP: CREATING THE CONFIDENCE TO CUT FRESH TRACKS
Thursday, July 26th 6-8 PM
Off the Beaten Path is proud to host Kelly Robbins, author of Trust Your Next Step: Creating the Confidence to Cut Fresh Tracks, and the woman behind The Fresh Tracks podcast. There is nothing quite like being the first one to cut tracks in the powder on a bluebird day skiing. The connection to nature as you glide down, knowing you are the first to experience the run for the day and that no one else will see what you are seeing right in that moment is priceless. Words can’t express the feelings involved. The same feelings of connection, calmness and peace can be experienced when you are living life on purpose and bringing your vision to reality through your work. For many of us this involves speaking and living our truth and creating a business from that place. Please join us for this evening of meaningful self-reflection and guidance.
