Rich Harwood, president and founder of The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation and creator of the turning outward practice, will visit Oak Park as part of his yearlong multi-city tour to speak about how communities can get on that more hopeful path.
At the keynote speech, questions addressed will include:
How do we bring people together when it feels like our society is breaking apart?
How can we unleash a greater sense of shared responsibility among us?
How can we be a part of something larger than ourselves to truly make a difference in our communities?
How can we personally find the courage and humility to take such a path?
"People are looking for a trusted voice who can provide a clear path for how to channel their frustrations, energies and aspirations to get on a more hopeful trajectory. We will need to be ruthless in our pursuit of hope in order to rediscover what we share in common and actively build upon it." -- Rich Harwood
