CIVIS 2.0: EDUCATING FOR SELF-GOVERNMENT
JANUARY 26, 2022
Webinar on how history and civics can best be taught to provide American schoolchildren the basic civic background knowledge for informed citizenship.
The Hewitt Healthcare Lecture celebrates the commitment of Pioneer Institute’s former Chairman, Charles “Colby” Hewitt, Jr. Colby previously served as Board Chairman of New England Deaconess Hospital and Trustee for Life of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The annual Hewitt Healthcare Lecture brings together the top healthcare experts in the nation to discuss the most pressing issues of the day.
In 1991, the Institute established the Better Government Competition, a crowdsourcing effort for innovative proposals that address our nation’s most pressing policy challenges, and bring the best policy ideas and programs to Massachusetts. To date, proposals enacted from the Competition have saved the Commonwealth over $850 million and led to dozens of improvements in public programs.
The Lovett C. Peters Lecture was named in honor of the Institute’s founding Chairman, Lovett C. “Pete” Peters — a successful business executive, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and lifelong proponent of high-quality educational opportunity for all children. The event assembles over 250 of Pioneer’s closest supporters to encourage and honor individuals whose vision, thought leadership, and accomplishments have left a mark on the world.
We invite you to take a moment, press play, and learn more about Pioneer’s work by viewing our collection of digital programming, Virtual Policy Briefings.
