From voting to organizing to running for office, American democracy calls upon each of us to engage in some form of political action. While it’s easy to debate the issues and discuss the candidates, how can individuals make an impact or get more involved in the political process? And what role do Business School students and business leaders play in our electoral process?

Please join the Jerome A. Chazen Institute for Global Business and Tamer Center for Social Enterprise for this panel discussion  on how to effectively engage in the political process from voter outreach, volunteering on political campaigns, to running for office. The speakers will also discuss the role of local versus national politics and policy and how technology, and the pandemic, have transformed engagement.

Panelists Include: 

  • Senator Emanuel Jones ’86, Georgia State Senate
  • Amanda Litman, co-founder and executive director of Run for Something

Moderated by: 

  • Gwen Shufro ’06, director at the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise
