From the Counties’ Seat: A Conversation about the Future of Public Health, Social Justice, and Public Safety

Co-produced with the Alliance for Innovation

Counties are having their moment!

Maybe because CARES Act funding flowed through Counties, or maybe because Counties are where the rubber meets the road for public health, public safety, and equity, this “Futures Friday” features several of America’s most dynamic and forward-facing county leaders for a candid discussion about why Counties are having their moment and what the future of local government may look like in a more socially just, economically equitable, post-COVID world.

Be the Change: Resonance and the Future with Dr. Ginny Whitelaw

If you’re paying close attention, you’ve noticed broken relationships:
* Our relationship to our natural environment has deteriorated, leading to the climate crisis;
* Our relationships with others has frayed around our differences, contributing to systemic racism, tribalism, and fear;
* Our relationships with ourselves has been disrupted by digital and social media addiction, which crowds out opportunities for stillness and connection.

What’s the key to healing and wholeness?

“Resonance,” says Dr. Ginny Whitelaw.

In this special, one-hour conversation, you’ll hear the thesis behind Ginny’s #1 Amazon bestseller and how to apply it to yourself, your relationships, and the causes you care about, now and in the future.
