Join the Center for Effective Government at the University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy to welcome its second cohort of four Senior Practitioner Fellows, who will join the Center for its yearlong fellowship.

The event will feature a discussion of key reform topics with the incoming cohort—including the themes and efforts that will define their time as CEG Senior Practitioner Fellows—as well as the fellows’ professional journeys. There will be an opportunity for Q&A with attendees at the end of the program. Boxed meals will also be available to in-person attendees.

Event participants include:

  • Tiana Epps-Johnson (Fellow) | Founder and Executive Director, Center for Tech and Civic Life

About the Senior Practitioner Fellowship: The CEG Senior Practitioner Fellowship brings together leaders who, during their yearlong tenure at the Center, will leverage their years of experience and expertise in public service, advocacy, policymaking, and civic engagement to grapple with issues of government and democracy reform at a critical moment: an election year marked by deep distrust and divisions in our politics, government mired in dysfunction and myriad threats to democracy.
