Disability & Innovation: The Universal Benefits of Inclusive Design
People with disabilities represent the largest minority group, numbering one billion worldwide. Reaching a group of this scale creates value for everyone. Organizations that prioritize accessibility benefit by gaining access to a much larger user base, improving the experience for both disabled and non-disabled users, and facilitating further innovation. Haben Girma, the first Deafblind person to graduate from Harvard Law School, is an accessibility and inclusion advocate, teaching organizations and individuals to design with accessibility in mind.

Strong Economy/Weak Outlook: The Paradox of Today’s Economy
In July, the U.S. economy set a new post World War II record for the longest expansion. Yet, despite the large number of jobs created and the very low unemployment rates, there are many troubling indicators: economic growth has been low by historical standards, the housing market—even after ten years of expansion—lags behind historical norms during expansions, as do wages and prices at this stage of the business cycle. Moreover, looming is the threat of job losses to AI. Stanford University’s professor of economics John Taylor, an academic with extensive policy experience in business cycle analysis and monetary, fiscal, and international policy, will add his perspective and insights to the current economic conditions.

Save the Oceans, Feed the World
Covering 71% of the globe and home to most of the life on our planet, the oceans regulate our environment, support the livelihood of millions, and -- if properly managed -- can provide a healthy seafood meal to a billion people, every day, forever. However, scientists report that our catch of fish is in steady decline, driven by over-exploitation and destructive practices. Kathryn Matthews, chief scientist for Oceana, will discuss her work running strategic, directed campaigns to create political will, allocate resources, pass laws, and otherwise enable the restoration of the world’s oceans.

A Story of Two People Who Gave Up on Democracy
In April 2010, Brazilian-born Swedish-American Julie Lindahl visited the German Federal Archives only to discover that her grandfather was in the SS and stationed in occupied Poland for the duration of WWII, leaving West Germany for Brazil in 1960 as a new wave of war crimes trials commenced. Lindahl relates her transformational journey through Germany, Poland, Brazil, and Paraguay in which she grapples with the questions of how and why her grandparents made their choices, and the consequences across generations.

Offering lessons about law, power, and institutions that emerge from this work, he will weave a story about how these struggles are connected to each other, and to all of us.
