      What role do monuments play in shaping history and culture? Who decides what goes up and what comes down? Is history really written by the victors?

      Please join the Aspen Institute Business & Society Program for a celebration of our 2020 Ideas Worth Teaching Awards.

      The pandemic and the social and economic crises of 2020 have revealed in new ways inequities in our societies and opened new sightlines into the interdependence inherent in modern society. What are the skills and frameworks that business executives need now to build a more just and sustainable version of capitalism for the future? And, even as higher education navigates unprecedented times, how might business schools leverage and support this awakened imperative for change?

      Please join us for an important discussion between Dan Schulman, CEO and President of PayPal, and Kerwin Charles, the Indra K. Nooyi Dean of the Yale School of Management, moderated by Judy Samuelson, Executive Director of the Aspen Institute Business & Society Program. Immediately following the conversation, we will announce the winners of our 2020 Ideas Worth Teaching Awards—nine innovative courses from around the world that are rising to the challenges of this moment, and shining a spotlight on what is possible in management education now.

Liu ’98 JD and Jonathan Kravis ’04 JD The Yale Club of Washington invites you to a private virtual discussion featuring former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie K. Liu YLS ‘98 and former Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Kravis YLS ‘04. "The law is a rule for men to live by," said then-Supreme Court Justice (and former Attorney General and future Nuremburg prosecutor) Robert H. Jackson, whom the Wall Street Journal recently called "the patron saint of the rule of law," in 1943. Today, "rule of law" has become a catchphrase across the political and ideological spectrum. In testimony this summer, Attorney General William Barr told the House Judiciary Committee, "[W]hat we're trying to do is restore the rule of law. . . . And I felt we didn’t have that previously at the department, we had strayed." But at the Democratic National Convention, former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates asserted that President Trump has "trampled the rule of law." But what does the "rule of law" really mean? How do we know what is, and what is not, the "rule of law"? And what is the role of the Department of Justice in promoting it, now, in 2021, and beyond? Please Note: This event will not be recorded, so we strongly encourage registering and attending. false
