    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.

    With rapid urbanization, cities are facing declining resources and increasing need, making the creation of cost-efficient and effective policies and programs more imperative than ever. Join researchers, policy makers and business leaders as they discuss the challenges—and opportunities—that American cities face today, highlighting how innovation, data and science can help improve the quality of urban life. 


    What to expect: Tim Knowles on improving urban policy through field experiments; Mayor Rahm Emanuel & Mayor Michael A. Nutter on the programs that are impacting their cities; Margot Pritzker on providing meaningful support to our cities
