EVENT REMINDER – FIX THE SYSTEM: Reforms needed to align the political system with the public interest.
Appleton Public Library
225 N Oneida St, Appleton, Wisconsin
Tuesday, October 2, 2018
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Open to the Public
Sara Eskrich, Director of Political Innovation for Katherine Gehl, brings an entirely new analytical lens to understanding the performance of our political system. Her presentation is based on the 2017 Harvard Business School Report entitled “Why Competition in the Politics Industry Is Failing America: A Strategy for Reinvigorating Our Democracy” by Katherine Gehl and Michael E. Porter. What would be required to change the political outcomes we are experiencing? What would it take to better align the political system with the public interest and make progress on the nation’s problems? The reforms she proposes constitute a cohesive strategy that will alter the incentives that drive behavior in the political system.
A question and answer period will follow the presentation.

New Member Coffee – 1:00 pm September 12th, 2018
The membership committee would like to remind everyone of the upcoming coffee on Wednesday, September 12, 1-2 pm at Nancy Havens’ home. This coffee is for brand new members, members who have only been in AAUW for 5 years or less, and especially for any members who haven’t been very active recently and would like to get reacquainted with AAUW. It’s an opportunity to meet other AAUW members before our first branch meeting. This will be a very casual get together and a chance to mix and mingle. You will also get a chance to meet our new President, Becky O’Connor , and ask her any questions you may have.
Please come and let’s have a great turnout! Looking forward to seeing you there.
