Previous panel discussions focused on diplomacy and negotiation in "A Time Like No Other" with retired Ambassador Richard N. Swett, the Honorable Christopher Shays, Mexican Consul General Alicia Kerber-Palma, and the Honorable Marjorie Margolies, president of Women’s Campaign International. Topics covered ranged from money in politics, the opioid crisis and our crumbling infrastructure, to foreign intervention in our elections. The follow-up questions by students provided an extraordinarily energizing exchange.
The most recent panel discussion explored communicating in today's new media world—what's real and what's not? Panelists included Bill Siemering, a member of the founding board of National Public Radio (NPR) who helped shape its flagship program All Things Considered; Tanya Husar, managing editor of 6abc Action News; Nancy Glass, founder of Glass Entertainment Group, a provider of programming for various networks including A&E, National Geographic and Animal Planet; and the Honorable Marjorie Margolies. The interactive conversations with students were insightful and passionate.
