    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    We’ve labeled them “slacktivists”—individuals whose social campaigns don’t seem to stack up against traditional activism. But with Twitter toppling governments, viral videos raising millions of dollars and social communities forming online, it’s clear that these instigators have tapped into a new brand of movement making. CIW gathers leaders of modern campaigns for a discussion of the making of—and continued need for—reactionary movements in a digital age.

    What to expect: Carmen Perez on the millennial protestor; Emily Greener on redefining what it means to be “that girl”; Mike Porath on creating an online community of individuals who had once felt alone

    *This Conversation is presented by Next Door State Farm Chicago.
