The Denny Center convenes leading voices relevant to both the public and private sectors including those from business, government and cultural institutions to discuss existing tensions between free market capitalism and democratic society and to recommend potential paths forward.
Events include discussions of the purpose of a business, primary responsibilities of boards of directors, tangible frameworks and actions available to business leaders and professionals that support them, and new ways to measure the health of capitalism in the US and around the world.
The primary goal of events hosted by the center is to identify the right questions, recognizing in many areas that reasonable people may disagree on answers or solutions.
The events will range from smaller lectures, interviews or panel discussions (less than 2 hours in length) to larger keynote symposia that span a half or full day.
