As deputy to the U.S. ambassador in Rwanda\, Joyce E. Leader witnessed the tumultuous prelude to genocide—a period of political wrangling\, human rights abuses\, and many levels of ominous\, ever-escalating violence. From Hope to Horror offers her insider’s account of the nation’s efforts to move toward democracy and peace and analyzes the challenges of conducting diplomacy in settings prone to—or engaged in—armed conflict. Leader traces the three-way struggle for control among Rwanda’s ethnic and regional factions. Each sought to shape democratization and peacemaking to its own advantage. The United States\, hoping to encourage a peaceful transition\, supported negotiations toward an accord. The result: a revolutionary blueprint for political and military power-sharing among Rwanda’s competing factions that met categorical rejection by the “losers” and a downward spiral into mass atrocities. Drawing on the Rwandan experience\, Leader proposes ways diplomacy can more effectively avert the escalation of violence by identifying the unintended consequences of policies and emphasizing conflict prevention over crisis response. From Hope to Horror fills in the forgotten history of the diplomats who tried but failed to prevent a human rights catastrophe. \nAuthor\, Joyce E.

In the book\, Lissner and Rapp-Hooper outline a path forward for the United States despite the challenges of recent years. \nRegistration through Zoom is required for this event\, which is part of CSS’s fall series on Politics and Security and is cosponsored with the Department of Government. For requests for accommodations such as closed captioning due to a disability or medical condition\, contact sspmediafellow@georgetown.edu no later than Thursday\, October 22. A good faith effort will be made to fulfill all accommodation requests. This event will be recorded and posted to the CSS YouTube channel with closed captions following the event. \nAbout the Book\nThis ambitious and incisive book presents a new vision for American foreign policy and international order at a time of historic upheaval. The United States global leadership crisis is not a passing shock created by the Trump presidency or COVID-19\, but the product of forces that will endure for decades. Amidst political polarization\, technological transformation\, and major global power shifts\, Lissner and Rapp-Hooper convincingly argue\, only a grand strategy of openness can protect American security and prosperity despite diminished national strength. Disciplined and forward-looking\, an openness strategy would counter authoritarian competitors by preventing the emergence of closed spheres of influence\, maintaining access to the global commons\, supporting democracies without promoting regime change\, and preserving economic interdependence. The authors provide a roadmap for the next president\, who must rebuild strength at home while preparing for novel forms of international competition. Lucid\, trenchant\, and practical\, An Open World is an essential guide to the future of geopolitics. \nAbout the Speaker\nRebecca Lissner is a Non-Resident Scholar at Georgetown University’s Center for Security Studies. She is also an Assistant Professor in the Strategic and Operational Research Department at the U.S. Naval War College. Previously\, Dr. Lissner held research fellowships at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perry World House\, the Council on Foreign Relations\, and International Security Studies at Yale University. She also served as Special Advisor to the Deputy Secretary at the U.S. Department of Energy. \nDr. Lissner’s research and writing focuses on U.S. national security strategy and the future of international order. She is the co-author of An Open World: How America Can Win the Contest for Twenty-First-Century Order (Yale University Press\, 2020) and is working on a book manuscript examining the effects of military interventions on American grand strategy. Her scholarship has been published in Political Science Quarterly\, the Texas National Security Review\, Survival\, Presidential Studies Quarterly\, and International Peacekeeping. Her policy writing has appeared in Foreign Affairs\, Foreign Policy\, and The Washington Quarterly\, among other publications.

Since the Section 301 investigation in 2017 through the imposition of tariffs in 2018\, and then a negotiated agreement in January 2020\, the administration has highlighted how China’s state capitalism and forced technology transfer policies have harmed U.S. companies and interests. In addition\, both Washington and Beijing are implementing new rules and restrictions to separate the American and Chinese technology ecosystems. Whoever takes the oath of office on the Capitol steps on January 20\, 2021\, will have a changed landscape and tool kit for interacting with the world’s second-largest economy. In this conversation\, two veterans of U.S.-China trade cooperation and conflict will build on their earlier podcast discussion and dissect the likely approaches and outcomes. \nFeatured\nWendy Cutler joined the Asia Society Policy Institute as vice president in November 2015 and serves as the managing director of the Washington\, DC\, office.

Think of Us — a non-profit that aims to successfully transition foster youth into a prosperous adulthood—recently spent time exploring how the system works for older foster youth who are aging out of care in 5 jurisdictions across the country. Through their research they identified what they consider to be the three missing pillars for positioning older foster youth for better life outcomes.\nJoin us for a sneak-peak presentation of what they learned\, followed by a discussion about implications for improving the foster care system across the nation.\nSixto Cancel\, Founder and CEO of Think of Us\nSarah Sullivan\, Head of Programs and Products at Think of Us\nEmily Tavoulareas\, Fellow\, Beeck Center\nSarah Fatallah\, Bloom Works\nAnna Gorman\, Student Analyst\, Beeck Center URL:https://www.georgetown.edu/event/improving-life-outcomes-for-youth-of-the-foster-care-system/ LOCATION:Virtual\, Virtual\, US CATEGORIES:Social Justice ORGANIZER;CN="Ori%20Hoffer":MAILTO:ori.hoffer@georgetown.edu END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20201028T180000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20201028T190000 DTSTAMP:20201102T023319 CREATED:20201028T024101Z LAST-MODIFIED:20201028T024101Z UID:46035-1603908000-1603911600@www.georgetown.edu SUMMARY:Critical Conversations: The 2020 Election What's at Stake?

Its title\, Laudato Si (“Praise be to you”)\, are the opening words of an often-prayed hymn of praise of God\, the earth\, and all her creatures by St. Francis of Assisi (1181-1226)\, whom Pope Francis identifies as “the example par excellence of care for the vulnerable and of an integral ecology.” Resonating that same urgent message\, this conference\, encouraged by Pope Francis’ officials at the Holy See\, draws attention to the even greater urgency of this universally significant document in its fifth anniversary year and how its message resounds across religious traditions. In his new encyclical Fratelli Tutti\, Pope Francis draws from Laudato Si: “In this shallow\, short-sighted culture that we have created\, bereft of a shared vision\, ‘it is foreseeable that\, once certain resources have been depleted\, the scene will be set for new wars…’” This event convenes voices from Pope Francis’ staff in Rome and from diverse religious traditions and various agencies to encourage discernment\, cooperation\, and policy development for an integral ecology. \nThe program consists of three online sessions over two days. On October 29 Cardinal Miguel Ayuso\, president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue\, will deliver the keynote address in the first session after words of welcome from Dr. John J. DeGioia\, president of Georgetown University. Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim\, co-founders and co-directors of the Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology\, will offer reflections after Cardinal Ayuso’s address. In a subsequent session\, Muslim\, Buddhist\, and Hindu representatives will reflect on how Laudato Si resonates in their religious traditions. On October 30\, representatives of various agencies and organizations structured to connect religious communities on environmental issues will explore how multireligious cooperation enhances care of the earth and the vulnerable. \nThis event is co-sponsored by Georgetown University’s Office of the President; Berkley Center for Religion\, Peace\, and World Affairs; and Office of the Vice President for Global Engagement with the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University. \nInstructions to join each session will be sent via email on the morning of the event to anyone who has filled out the RSVP form.

However\, the lack of technical interpretations of many of those requirements has inhibited their adoption. In this talk\, I will discuss our recent efforts to operationalize several data protection principles from GDPR—including the data minimization principle and the right to be forgotten—in the context of automated profiling and decision-making systems. We propose new models that enable the adoption of those principles and evaluate the outcomes in the domain of recommendation and search systems. Our results demonstrate remaining practical challenges and some of the impacts the implementation of the legal principles might have on the digital ecosystem.\n\n\nBio: Asia J. Biega is an incoming faculty member at the Max Planck Institute for Security and Privacy\, currently spending time as a postdoctoral researcher in the Fairness\, Accountability\, Transparency\, and Ethics in AI (FATE) Group at Microsoft Research Montréal. At MPI-SP\, she will head a group focused on Responsible Computing. Through interdisciplinary collaborations\, she designs legally\, ethically\, and socially responsible information and social computing systems and studies how they interact with and influence their users. Before joining Microsoft Research\, she completed her PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems.

Today this project is in crisis\, threatened from the outside by illiberal challengers and from the inside by nationalist-populist movements. This timely book offers the first full account of liberal internationalism’s long journey from its nineteenth-century roots to today’s fractured political moment. Creating an international “space” for liberal democracy\, preserving rights and protections within and between countries\, and balancing conflicting values such as liberty and equality\, openness and social solidarity\, and sovereignty and interdependence—these are the guiding aims that have propelled liberal internationalism through the upheavals of the past two centuries. G. John Ikenberry argues that in a twenty-first century marked by rising economic and security interdependence\, liberal internationalism—reformed and reimagined—remains the most viable project to protect liberal democracy. \nPlease join us on October 30 at 1:30pm EDT for a discussion with Dr. Ikenberry about his work. The event will be moderated by Professor Daniel Nexon with comments by Professor Stacie Goddard (Wellesley College). Register here to receive the link to the event. \nAbout the Author\nG.

Kyte calls SE4All a “call for both revolution and reform: a radical vision where everyone can access and afford the reliable energy they need to live a productive\, healthy\, secure life\, while respecting the planetary constraints that we all face as a result of climate change.” Rachel Kyte’s leadership\, and her promotion of the UN Sustainable Development Goals\, have been recognized by numerous awards for women’s leadership\, climate action\, and sustainable development. \nA virtual conversation with: \nDean Rachel Kyte \nRachel Kyte is the 14th dean of The Fletcher School at Tufts University.

In her UN role and as CEO of SEforAll\, a nonprofit public/private platform created from an initiative of the UN secretary-general\, Kyte led efforts to promote and finance clean\, affordable energy and low-carbon growth as part of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in the context of the Paris Agreement. \nModerated by: \nDean Joel Hellman \nDean Joel Hellman brings to Georgetown a unique and valuable perspective from his work on issues of governance\, conflict and the political economy of development around the world. He joins the School of Foreign Service following 15 years of service at the World Bank\, where he most recently served as Chief Institutional Economist and previously led its engagement with fragile and conflict-affected states as Director of the Center on Conflict\, Security and Development in Nairobi\, Kenya. \nThis event is supported by the Michael C.

This includes selecting initial steps in the requirements elicitation process\, discussing techniques used to elicit requirements and then classifying different types of requirements. Three experienced managers will discuss what works best for them and why\, and also will share lessons learned.\n\n  \nNovember 11\, 6:00 p.m. ET – The Journey of an Emotionally Competent Project Manager: Recipe for Success \nDr. Dereje Tessema\, Sr. Project Manager at USNRC \n\nThe presentation summarizes the levels of leadership from individual development to nation-building. Tools\, techniques\, best practices from the industry\, as well as challenges and opportunities (room for improvement)\, are listed for each leadership level. Dr. Tessema’s model\, “The Journey of Project Manager through various bits of intelligence\,” will be discussed.\n\n  \nNovember 18\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Introduction to Business Agility with SAFe \nJoe Vallone\, SPCT & SAFe Fellow \n\nBusiness Agility is the ability to compete and thrive in the digital age by quickly responding to market changes and emerging opportunities with innovative business solutions. Business Agility requires that everyone involved in delivering solutions—business and technology leaders\, development\, IT operations\, legal\, marketing\, finance\, support\, compliance\, security\, and others—use Lean and Agile practices to continually deliver innovative\, high-quality products and services faster than the competition. Join this event to learn the 7 core competencies to mastering Business Agility.\n\n  \nNovember 18\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Building Trust: The First Step to Successful Project Management \nA. Jamshed Adel\, Author \n\nThe number of failed and challenged projects are significant today despite considerable rapid advancements in the project management methods\, tools\, and techniques. Many factors contribute to project challenges and failures that could be classified into four major categories\, including poor planning\, poor execution\, poor quality control\, and poor communication. Building Trust explores TRUST as an essential tool to address these challenges\, enhance agility\, and ensure a vital first step toward successful project management. The book proposes an effective formulated strategy for project managers and leaders to build trust in their projects. The strategy discusses Empowering and E.M.P.O.W.E.R. (Establishing a Shared Vision\, Managing Expectations\, Promoting Creativity\, Optimizing Team Collaboration\, Walking the Talk\, Eliciting Feedback\, Readjusting as Needed) as the key interrelated principles to build highly trustful project environments.\n\n  \nDecember 2\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Facilitating EQ to drive High-Performance Organizations \nDr. Saya Sone\, Adjunct Faculty at Georgetown University \n\nWhen there is a gap between how people feel and how people perform at work\, we urge leaders to learn how to facilitate Emotional Intelligence to drive high performing workplaces. Leaders will acknowledge how people’s self-awareness impacts their behavior\, perception\, and acknowledgment of the way others feel. Primarily\, the presentation is aiming to help leaders learn how to openly and effectively express themselves and honor commitments in others. If leaders could utilize Emotional Intelligence when making decisions\, they could effectively manage their mood\, emotions\, and behavior. Consequently\, leaders could continuously improve themselves and positively influence others through problem-solving\, feedback\, and supporting others’ work. The goal of the presentation is to cultivate leaders’ abilities to manage their energy and turn into the needs of the group\, allowing them to provide the best experience to build high-performing organizations.\n\n  \nDecember 2\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Moving Beyond Scrum in Agile Projects \nDominic Lepore\, President at Terrapin Consulting \n\nScrum is the most popular Agile methodology.

They use AI/ML primarily to automate processes\, make better business decisions\, and innovate. Creating the technical capabilities is challenging enough\, but enabling the existing Program Management Offices to correctly manage this new type of work is the bigger challenge. In this talk I will focus on a few methods and techniques to help manage the AI/ML programs from picking up the right business case\, to keeping the executive stakeholders informed\, to delivering the results successfully.\n\n  \nDecember 9\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Aligning Programs and Projects to Strategy \nDr. John Corso\, President at Strategent Corporation; Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies \n\nPrograms and their subordinate projects\, especially if they are transformational in character\, directly support the accomplishment of organizational strategy in crucial ways. Program/project managers must access the strategic management process to ensure their work aligns with the strategic objectives their work supports.\n\n  \nDecember 16\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Best practices in strategic alignment and benefits realization management in a transformation portfolio \nDr. George Moschoglou\, Associate Professor of Practice and Faculty Director at Georgetown University \nDaniel McCombe\, Head of Finance – Services & Transformation at Airbus \n\nThe lecture will cover best practices on how to align your transformation initiatives to the organization’s strategic goals and objectives (strategic alignment)\, how to translate business strategy drivers into expected benefits and evaluate the benefits achieved against original baselines (benefits realization and value management)\, and how to compose an optimal transformation portfolio to realize expected benefits under organizational constraints (portfolio identification and prioritization).\n\n  \nDecember 16\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Project Management @ Airbus Finance Transformation Office \nFranklin Ortiz\, Finance & Transformation Manager at Airbus \n\nLearn how to manage your organization’s top projects by applying project management principles and developing a strategy to help you gain leadership buy-in.

And yet\, few people can define curiosity. Curiosity Studies marshals scholars from more than a dozen fields not only to define curiosity but also to grapple with its ethics as well as its role in technological advancement and global citizenship. While intriguing research on curiosity has occurred in numerous disciplines for decades\, no rigorously cross-disciplinary study has existed—until now. \nCuriosity Studies stages an interdisciplinary conversation about what curiosity is and what resources it holds for human and ecological flourishing. These engaging essays are integrated into four clusters: scientific inquiry\, educational practice\, social relations\, and transformative power. By exploring curiosity through the practice of scientific inquiry\, the contours of human learning\, the stakes of social difference\, and the potential of radical imagination\, these clusters focus and reinvigorate the study of this universal but slippery phenomenon: the desire to know. \nAgainst the assumption that curiosity is neutral\, this volume insists that curiosity has a history and a political import and requires precision to define and operationalize. As various fields deepen its analysis\, a new ecosystem for knowledge production can flourish\, driven by real-world problems and a commitment to solve them in collaboration. By paying particular attention to pedagogy throughout\, Curiosity Studies equips us to live critically and creatively in what might be called our new Age of Curiosity. \nJoin us on November 5\, 2020 at 12:00pm EST for a discussion with authors Perry Zurn and Arjun Shankar in conversation with Christina A. León and Shiloh Krupar. Register here to receive the link to the event. \nAbout the Authors\nArjun Shankar is an Assistant Professor of Culture and Politics in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. His research draws from theories in globalization and development\, digital and visual ethnography\, critical race and postcolonial theory\, and curiosity studies\, with a focus on poverty alleviation efforts and the help economy in India. In his current book project\, Brown Saviors and their Others\, he takes India’s burgeoning help economy\, specifically the education NGO sector\, as a site from which to interrogate these ideas. He shows how colonial\, racial\, and caste formations undergird how transnational and digitized NGO work is done in India today. He has also been interested in developing decolonial\, participatory visual methodologies and has primarily focused on the neocolonial politics of representation\, global circulation\, and reception of the “impoverished” and “suffering” child figure. He has published work on race\, poverty\, education\, and visual regimes in Oxford Bibliographies\, Visual Anthropology Review\, American Anthropologist\, and Visual Communication Journal. He creates participatory films and has taught in schools and universities in the United States and India. \nPerry Zurn is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at American University. He researches in political philosophy\, gender theory\, and applied ethics. Zurn is the author of Curiosity and Power: The Politics of Inquiry (University of Minnesota Press\, 2021) and the co-author of Curious Minds (MIT Press\, under contract). He is also the co-editor of Active Intolerance: Michel Foucault\, the Prisons Information Group\, and the Future of Abolition (2016)\, Carceral Notebooks 12 (2017)\, Curiosity Studies: A New Ecology of Knowledge (2020)\, and Intolerable: Writings from Michel Foucault and the Prisons Information Group\, 1970-1980 (2020). His work appears in the APA Newsletter on LGBT Issues in Philosophy\, Carceral Notebooks\, Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy\, Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association\, Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy\, Modern and Contemporary France\, philoSOPHIA\, Radical Philosophy Review\, and Zetesis. \nAbout the Discussants\nChristina A. León is Assistant Professor of English at Princeton University where she focuses on Latinx\, Caribbean\, and hemispheric literatures\, in addition to critical engagements with feminist theory\, queer theory\, and performance studies. She is currently at work on her first book\, entitled Radiant Opacity: Aesthetic\, Ethical\, and Material Relations in Latinidad. Her writing has been featured in ASAP/Journal\, Post 45\, Sargasso: A Journal of Caribbean Language\, Literature & Culture\, Small Axe\, and Women and Performance: A Journal of Feminist Theory\, in addition to translations in the forthcoming Havana Reader (Duke University Press). \nShiloh Krupar is a Geographer and Provost’s Distinguished Associate Professor at Georgetown University\, where she currently serves as Field Chair of the Program in Culture and Politics in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. Her teaching and research interests\, which span geography\, art/architecture\, the medical humanities\, science & technology studies\, and environmental justice have explored several interrelated areas: military landscapes\, such as decommissioned military sites and nuclear facilities; model cities and urban-environmental projects in China; cities in aftermath and the impacts of environmental\, juridical\, and financial disasters on the urban environment; and\, lastly\, biomedicine\, specifically environmental biomonitoring\, medical administration\, and geographies of waste. The recipient of a Quadrant Fellowship\, her book Hot Spotter’s Report: Military Fables of Toxic Waste (University of Minnesota Press\, 2013) explores the politics of nature conservation\, environmental memory\, contamination and compensation issues at decommissioned military sites in the western United States. Her second book Deadly Biocultures: The Ethics of Life-Making (University of Minnesota Press\, 2019\, co-authored with Nadine Ehlers) examines the affirmation to hope\, target\, thrive\, secure\, and green in the respective biocultures of cancer\, race-based health\, fatness\, aging\, and the afterlife. Its chapters focus on specific practices and technologies that ostensibly affirm life but are linked to capital in ways that create inequities and deathly conditions.  \n  URL:https://www.georgetown.edu/event/book-launch-curiosity-studies-by-arjun-shankar/ LOCATION:Online\, Online\, US CATEGORIES:Academic Events ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.georgetown.edu/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Shankar-Book-Talk-Featured-Image-2-jpg.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20201105T123000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20201105T134500 DTSTAMP:20201102T023319 CREATED:20201023T184347Z LAST-MODIFIED:20201029T191618Z UID:45624-1604579400-1604583900@www.georgetown.edu SUMMARY:Indian and Western Varieties of Secularism: A Conversation with Rajeev Bhargava DESCRIPTION:Rajeev Bhargava is director of the Institute of Indian Thought at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies in New Delhi and a noted Indian political theorist.

A lecture may include\, but is not limited to\, a traditional lecture\, demonstration\, best practice presentation\, or interactive activity. These lectures are open to the public and registration can be found here. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants the day of the event. \n  \nSchedule of Lectures: \nNovember 4\, 6:00 p.m. ET – You’ve Got a Friend in MoSCoW: How and Why Business Analysts Choose Specific Tools and Techniques to Optimize Requirements Elicitation \nMichael Fanning\, Adjunct Lecturer at Georgetown University \nMarcus Butler\, Director of Logistics at US Department of Veterans Affairs \nJohn Nikiforakis\, Assistant Product Manager at PEO Soldier \n\nOnce initial scoping and select planning activities are completed\, business analysts must prepare for and conduct requirements elicitation. This includes selecting initial steps in the requirements elicitation process\, discussing techniques used to elicit requirements and then classifying different types of requirements. Three experienced managers will discuss what works best for them and why\, and also will share lessons learned.\n\n  \nNovember 11\, 6:00 p.m. ET – The Journey of an Emotionally Competent Project Manager: Recipe for Success \nDr. Dereje Tessema\, Sr. Project Manager at USNRC \n\nThe presentation summarizes the levels of leadership from individual development to nation-building. Tools\, techniques\, best practices from the industry\, as well as challenges and opportunities (room for improvement)\, are listed for each leadership level. Dr. Tessema’s model\, “The Journey of Project Manager through various bits of intelligence\,” will be discussed.\n\n  \nNovember 18\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Introduction to Business Agility with SAFe \nJoe Vallone\, SPCT & SAFe Fellow \n\nBusiness Agility is the ability to compete and thrive in the digital age by quickly responding to market changes and emerging opportunities with innovative business solutions. Business Agility requires that everyone involved in delivering solutions—business and technology leaders\, development\, IT operations\, legal\, marketing\, finance\, support\, compliance\, security\, and others—use Lean and Agile practices to continually deliver innovative\, high-quality products and services faster than the competition. Join this event to learn the 7 core competencies to mastering Business Agility.\n\n  \nNovember 18\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Building Trust: The First Step to Successful Project Management \nA. Jamshed Adel\, Author \n\nThe number of failed and challenged projects are significant today despite considerable rapid advancements in the project management methods\, tools\, and techniques. Many factors contribute to project challenges and failures that could be classified into four major categories\, including poor planning\, poor execution\, poor quality control\, and poor communication. Building Trust explores TRUST as an essential tool to address these challenges\, enhance agility\, and ensure a vital first step toward successful project management. The book proposes an effective formulated strategy for project managers and leaders to build trust in their projects. The strategy discusses Empowering and E.M.P.O.W.E.R. (Establishing a Shared Vision\, Managing Expectations\, Promoting Creativity\, Optimizing Team Collaboration\, Walking the Talk\, Eliciting Feedback\, Readjusting as Needed) as the key interrelated principles to build highly trustful project environments.\n\n  \nDecember 2\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Facilitating EQ to drive High-Performance Organizations \nDr. Saya Sone\, Adjunct Faculty at Georgetown University \n\nWhen there is a gap between how people feel and how people perform at work\, we urge leaders to learn how to facilitate Emotional Intelligence to drive high performing workplaces. Leaders will acknowledge how people’s self-awareness impacts their behavior\, perception\, and acknowledgment of the way others feel. Primarily\, the presentation is aiming to help leaders learn how to openly and effectively express themselves and honor commitments in others. If leaders could utilize Emotional Intelligence when making decisions\, they could effectively manage their mood\, emotions\, and behavior. Consequently\, leaders could continuously improve themselves and positively influence others through problem-solving\, feedback\, and supporting others’ work. The goal of the presentation is to cultivate leaders’ abilities to manage their energy and turn into the needs of the group\, allowing them to provide the best experience to build high-performing organizations.\n\n  \nDecember 2\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Moving Beyond Scrum in Agile Projects \nDominic Lepore\, President at Terrapin Consulting \n\nScrum is the most popular Agile methodology. Many organizations increase productivity quickly but then hit limitations using Scrum. This presentation discusses common issues with Scrum and introduces advanced agile techniques to continue to increase productivity\, customer satisfaction and software quality.\n\n  \nDecember 9\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Strategy and Execution Mechanisms for Artificial Intelligence Program Management \nZorina Alliata\, Sr. Global Machine Learning Strategist at Amazon \n\nEvery day\, I work with customers across all industries who are using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in their organizations. They use AI/ML primarily to automate processes\, make better business decisions\, and innovate. Creating the technical capabilities is challenging enough\, but enabling the existing Program Management Offices to correctly manage this new type of work is the bigger challenge. In this talk I will focus on a few methods and techniques to help manage the AI/ML programs from picking up the right business case\, to keeping the executive stakeholders informed\, to delivering the results successfully.\n\n  \nDecember 9\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Aligning Programs and Projects to Strategy \nDr. John Corso\, President at Strategent Corporation; Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies \n\nPrograms and their subordinate projects\, especially if they are transformational in character\, directly support the accomplishment of organizational strategy in crucial ways. Program/project managers must access the strategic management process to ensure their work aligns with the strategic objectives their work supports.\n\n  \nDecember 16\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Best practices in strategic alignment and benefits realization management in a transformation portfolio \nDr. George Moschoglou\, Associate Professor of Practice and Faculty Director at Georgetown University \nDaniel McCombe\, Head of Finance – Services & Transformation at Airbus \n\nThe lecture will cover best practices on how to align your transformation initiatives to the organization’s strategic goals and objectives (strategic alignment)\, how to translate business strategy drivers into expected benefits and evaluate the benefits achieved against original baselines (benefits realization and value management)\, and how to compose an optimal transformation portfolio to realize expected benefits under organizational constraints (portfolio identification and prioritization).\n\n  \nDecember 16\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Project Management @ Airbus Finance Transformation Office \nFranklin Ortiz\, Finance & Transformation Manager at Airbus \n\nLearn how to manage your organization’s top projects by applying project management principles and developing a strategy to help you gain leadership buy-in.

Allowing the number of moment conditions grow with the sample size\, we show the asymptotic normality of the causal effects estimates without relying on regression models for the counterfactuals nor for the propensity scores. In a simulation study\, we assess the finite sample properties of the proposed estimators in terms of the mean squared error and coverage of confidence intervals. We illustrate an application of the proposed method to data analysis of a training program study.\nAuthors: Pierre Chausse\, Mihai Giurcanu and George Luta. \nPlease RSVP to receive a Zoom link. \nBio3 Seminar Series sponsored by Department of Biostatistics\, Bioinformatics & Biomathematics (DBBB) URL:https://www.georgetown.edu/event/bio3-2020-11-13/ LOCATION:Virtual via Zoom\, Virtual via Zoom\, US CATEGORIES:Academic Events ORGANIZER;CN="Department%20of%20Biostatistics":MAILTO:dbbb@georgetown.edu END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20201113T123000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20201113T133000 DTSTAMP:20201102T023319 CREATED:20201013T071445Z LAST-MODIFIED:20201019T123748Z UID:44531-1605270600-1605274200@www.georgetown.edu SUMMARY:Global Challenges Symposium: Environment and Energy DESCRIPTION:Register for the discussion here! \nThe Global Challenges Symposium is a weekly discussion open to graduate students in the SFS about how the COVID pandemic is impacting the world order.

This year’s conference is themed: Ripples-It Starts with a Drop will have speakers exploring the way a single drop of action in an otherwise still sea can create ripples seen remarkably far away from the source. The event will be highlighting brilliant stories from community activists\, leaders\, world-renowned scientists\, and Georgetown students. \nTED is an annual event that brings together the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that matter in any discipline — technology\, entertainment\, design\, science\, humanities\, business\, development. The talks at the conference\, called TED Talks\, are then made available to watch for free on TED.com. \nIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading\, TEDx is a program of local\, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event\, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. TEDx is a new program that enables local communities such as universities\, businesses\, libraries\, neighborhoods\, or just groups of friends to organize\, design\, and host their own independent\, TED-like events. \nNow in its ninth year\, TEDxGeorgetown has grown to a featured campus event and provides very meaningful experiences for our community and city. TEDxGeorgetown is supported by Jack DeGioia in the Georgetown University Presidents Office. \nJoin us as we share-worthy ideas!

A lecture may include\, but is not limited to\, a traditional lecture\, demonstration\, best practice presentation\, or interactive activity. These lectures are open to the public and registration can be found here. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants the day of the event. \n  \nSchedule of Lectures: \nNovember 4\, 6:00 p.m. ET – You’ve Got a Friend in MoSCoW: How and Why Business Analysts Choose Specific Tools and Techniques to Optimize Requirements Elicitation \nMichael Fanning\, Adjunct Lecturer at Georgetown University \nMarcus Butler\, Director of Logistics at US Department of Veterans Affairs \nJohn Nikiforakis\, Assistant Product Manager at PEO Soldier \n\nOnce initial scoping and select planning activities are completed\, business analysts must prepare for and conduct requirements elicitation. This includes selecting initial steps in the requirements elicitation process\, discussing techniques used to elicit requirements and then classifying different types of requirements. Three experienced managers will discuss what works best for them and why\, and also will share lessons learned.\n\n  \nNovember 11\, 6:00 p.m. ET – The Journey of an Emotionally Competent Project Manager: Recipe for Success \nDr. Dereje Tessema\, Sr. Project Manager at USNRC \n\nThe presentation summarizes the levels of leadership from individual development to nation-building. Tools\, techniques\, best practices from the industry\, as well as challenges and opportunities (room for improvement)\, are listed for each leadership level. Dr. Tessema’s model\, “The Journey of Project Manager through various bits of intelligence\,” will be discussed.\n\n  \nNovember 18\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Introduction to Business Agility with SAFe \nJoe Vallone\, SPCT & SAFe Fellow \n\nBusiness Agility is the ability to compete and thrive in the digital age by quickly responding to market changes and emerging opportunities with innovative business solutions. Business Agility requires that everyone involved in delivering solutions—business and technology leaders\, development\, IT operations\, legal\, marketing\, finance\, support\, compliance\, security\, and others—use Lean and Agile practices to continually deliver innovative\, high-quality products and services faster than the competition. Join this event to learn the 7 core competencies to mastering Business Agility.\n\n  \nNovember 18\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Building Trust: The First Step to Successful Project Management \nA. Jamshed Adel\, Author \n\nThe number of failed and challenged projects are significant today despite considerable rapid advancements in the project management methods\, tools\, and techniques. Many factors contribute to project challenges and failures that could be classified into four major categories\, including poor planning\, poor execution\, poor quality control\, and poor communication. Building Trust explores TRUST as an essential tool to address these challenges\, enhance agility\, and ensure a vital first step toward successful project management. The book proposes an effective formulated strategy for project managers and leaders to build trust in their projects. The strategy discusses Empowering and E.M.P.O.W.E.R. (Establishing a Shared Vision\, Managing Expectations\, Promoting Creativity\, Optimizing Team Collaboration\, Walking the Talk\, Eliciting Feedback\, Readjusting as Needed) as the key interrelated principles to build highly trustful project environments.\n\n  \nDecember 2\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Facilitating EQ to drive High-Performance Organizations \nDr. Saya Sone\, Adjunct Faculty at Georgetown University \n\nWhen there is a gap between how people feel and how people perform at work\, we urge leaders to learn how to facilitate Emotional Intelligence to drive high performing workplaces. Leaders will acknowledge how people’s self-awareness impacts their behavior\, perception\, and acknowledgment of the way others feel. Primarily\, the presentation is aiming to help leaders learn how to openly and effectively express themselves and honor commitments in others. If leaders could utilize Emotional Intelligence when making decisions\, they could effectively manage their mood\, emotions\, and behavior. Consequently\, leaders could continuously improve themselves and positively influence others through problem-solving\, feedback\, and supporting others’ work. The goal of the presentation is to cultivate leaders’ abilities to manage their energy and turn into the needs of the group\, allowing them to provide the best experience to build high-performing organizations.\n\n  \nDecember 2\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Moving Beyond Scrum in Agile Projects \nDominic Lepore\, President at Terrapin Consulting \n\nScrum is the most popular Agile methodology. Many organizations increase productivity quickly but then hit limitations using Scrum. This presentation discusses common issues with Scrum and introduces advanced agile techniques to continue to increase productivity\, customer satisfaction and software quality.\n\n  \nDecember 9\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Strategy and Execution Mechanisms for Artificial Intelligence Program Management \nZorina Alliata\, Sr. Global Machine Learning Strategist at Amazon \n\nEvery day\, I work with customers across all industries who are using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in their organizations. They use AI/ML primarily to automate processes\, make better business decisions\, and innovate. Creating the technical capabilities is challenging enough\, but enabling the existing Program Management Offices to correctly manage this new type of work is the bigger challenge. In this talk I will focus on a few methods and techniques to help manage the AI/ML programs from picking up the right business case\, to keeping the executive stakeholders informed\, to delivering the results successfully.\n\n  \nDecember 9\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Aligning Programs and Projects to Strategy \nDr. John Corso\, President at Strategent Corporation; Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies \n\nPrograms and their subordinate projects\, especially if they are transformational in character\, directly support the accomplishment of organizational strategy in crucial ways. Program/project managers must access the strategic management process to ensure their work aligns with the strategic objectives their work supports.\n\n  \nDecember 16\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Best practices in strategic alignment and benefits realization management in a transformation portfolio \nDr. George Moschoglou\, Associate Professor of Practice and Faculty Director at Georgetown University \nDaniel McCombe\, Head of Finance – Services & Transformation at Airbus \n\nThe lecture will cover best practices on how to align your transformation initiatives to the organization’s strategic goals and objectives (strategic alignment)\, how to translate business strategy drivers into expected benefits and evaluate the benefits achieved against original baselines (benefits realization and value management)\, and how to compose an optimal transformation portfolio to realize expected benefits under organizational constraints (portfolio identification and prioritization).\n\n  \nDecember 16\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Project Management @ Airbus Finance Transformation Office \nFranklin Ortiz\, Finance & Transformation Manager at Airbus \n\nLearn how to manage your organization’s top projects by applying project management principles and developing a strategy to help you gain leadership buy-in.

Esposito is University Professor\, Professor of Religion and International Affairs\, and Professor of Islamic Studies and Founding Director of the Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.

Rather than using an adjective (i.e. “what”)\, it may be more productive to use a determiner (e.g. “whose”). “Whose time is it?” exposes the possibility that some may own time\, while others can only owe it. Not only does the question help distinguish between time’s owners and borrowers\, but it also establishes time’s role as a tool of exploitation and ontological violence. Asking “Whose time is it?” prompts other generative inquiries. For example\, How is time racialized? How is race temporalized? What does it mean to be emblematic of the future\, yet denied a place in time? How does racism take time? To answer these questions\, my research relies on ethnographic observations and thirty in-person interviews with black youth at Run-a-Way – a multi-service program in the Twin Cities. By illustrating what youth say and do inside and outside of Run-a-Way\, this research stretches the sociological imagination by invoking a call to find something strange within what is most familiar. Through their stories\, we come to understand how black youth funk the clock and help facilitate a paradigmatic shift toward a revised sociology of time.

He is now authoring a forthcoming paper that highlights both critical questions and issues posed by this intercultural encounter at the age of Reformation and shows why the topic deserves serious attention by scholars today. \nThis discussion of Protestant-Ethiopian Orthodox relations will highlight neglected contacts in the 1530s between Martin Luther\, Philip Melanchton\, and Abba Mika’el. David D. Daniels III\, a leading scholar of the global context of the early Reformation period\, will moderate a panel between Paulau and three other panelists versed in Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity and Orthodox-Lutheran dialogue to discuss the implications of Paulau’s paper and research. The discussants are Rev. Dr. Dagmar Heller\, acting director of the Institute for Ecumenical Studies and Research; Solomon Gebreyes Beyene\, research fellow at the Hiob Ludolf Centre for Ethiopian and Eritrean Studies; and Tim Wengert\, emeritus professor of church history at the United Lutheran Seminary (Philadelphia). The discussion will be framed within three ecumenical contexts: 1) the substance and significance of the 1534 event being the first documented meeting of Protestant leaders and an Orthodox monk; 2) the pre-Regensburg conversation about resolving the Catholic and Protestant conflict; and 3) the intercultural context that frames what we now understand as Global North-South exchanges between Christians and the manner in which the Southern Hemisphere first entered the European Reformation. \nThis event is co-sponsored by Georgetown University’s Department of Theology and Religious Studies and its Berkley Center for Religion\, Peace\, and World Affairs in collaboration with the Ecclesiological Investigations International Research Network\, the McCormick Theological Seminary\, the Konfessionskundliches Institut\, and Ecumenical Trends. \nThe Zoom Webinar link and instructions to join the call will be sent out on the morning of the event date to anyone who has filled out the RSVP form. \nThis event will be recorded and a captioned video will be posted to this page after the event date. Please RSVP to receive an email notification once it is posted.

A lecture may include\, but is not limited to\, a traditional lecture\, demonstration\, best practice presentation\, or interactive activity. These lectures are open to the public and registration can be found here. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants the day of the event. \n  \nSchedule of Lectures: \nNovember 4\, 6:00 p.m. ET – You’ve Got a Friend in MoSCoW: How and Why Business Analysts Choose Specific Tools and Techniques to Optimize Requirements Elicitation \nMichael Fanning\, Adjunct Lecturer at Georgetown University \nMarcus Butler\, Director of Logistics at US Department of Veterans Affairs \nJohn Nikiforakis\, Assistant Product Manager at PEO Soldier \n\nOnce initial scoping and select planning activities are completed\, business analysts must prepare for and conduct requirements elicitation. This includes selecting initial steps in the requirements elicitation process\, discussing techniques used to elicit requirements and then classifying different types of requirements. Three experienced managers will discuss what works best for them and why\, and also will share lessons learned.\n\n  \nNovember 11\, 6:00 p.m. ET – The Journey of an Emotionally Competent Project Manager: Recipe for Success \nDr. Dereje Tessema\, Sr. Project Manager at USNRC \n\nThe presentation summarizes the levels of leadership from individual development to nation-building. Tools\, techniques\, best practices from the industry\, as well as challenges and opportunities (room for improvement)\, are listed for each leadership level. Dr. Tessema’s model\, “The Journey of Project Manager through various bits of intelligence\,” will be discussed.\n\n  \nNovember 18\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Introduction to Business Agility with SAFe \nJoe Vallone\, SPCT & SAFe Fellow \n\nBusiness Agility is the ability to compete and thrive in the digital age by quickly responding to market changes and emerging opportunities with innovative business solutions. Business Agility requires that everyone involved in delivering solutions—business and technology leaders\, development\, IT operations\, legal\, marketing\, finance\, support\, compliance\, security\, and others—use Lean and Agile practices to continually deliver innovative\, high-quality products and services faster than the competition. Join this event to learn the 7 core competencies to mastering Business Agility.\n\n  \nNovember 18\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Building Trust: The First Step to Successful Project Management \nA. Jamshed Adel\, Author \n\nThe number of failed and challenged projects are significant today despite considerable rapid advancements in the project management methods\, tools\, and techniques. Many factors contribute to project challenges and failures that could be classified into four major categories\, including poor planning\, poor execution\, poor quality control\, and poor communication. Building Trust explores TRUST as an essential tool to address these challenges\, enhance agility\, and ensure a vital first step toward successful project management. The book proposes an effective formulated strategy for project managers and leaders to build trust in their projects. The strategy discusses Empowering and E.M.P.O.W.E.R. (Establishing a Shared Vision\, Managing Expectations\, Promoting Creativity\, Optimizing Team Collaboration\, Walking the Talk\, Eliciting Feedback\, Readjusting as Needed) as the key interrelated principles to build highly trustful project environments.\n\n  \nDecember 2\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Facilitating EQ to drive High-Performance Organizations \nDr. Saya Sone\, Adjunct Faculty at Georgetown University \n\nWhen there is a gap between how people feel and how people perform at work\, we urge leaders to learn how to facilitate Emotional Intelligence to drive high performing workplaces. Leaders will acknowledge how people’s self-awareness impacts their behavior\, perception\, and acknowledgment of the way others feel. Primarily\, the presentation is aiming to help leaders learn how to openly and effectively express themselves and honor commitments in others. If leaders could utilize Emotional Intelligence when making decisions\, they could effectively manage their mood\, emotions\, and behavior. Consequently\, leaders could continuously improve themselves and positively influence others through problem-solving\, feedback\, and supporting others’ work. The goal of the presentation is to cultivate leaders’ abilities to manage their energy and turn into the needs of the group\, allowing them to provide the best experience to build high-performing organizations.\n\n  \nDecember 2\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Moving Beyond Scrum in Agile Projects \nDominic Lepore\, President at Terrapin Consulting \n\nScrum is the most popular Agile methodology. Many organizations increase productivity quickly but then hit limitations using Scrum. This presentation discusses common issues with Scrum and introduces advanced agile techniques to continue to increase productivity\, customer satisfaction and software quality.\n\n  \nDecember 9\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Strategy and Execution Mechanisms for Artificial Intelligence Program Management \nZorina Alliata\, Sr. Global Machine Learning Strategist at Amazon \n\nEvery day\, I work with customers across all industries who are using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in their organizations. They use AI/ML primarily to automate processes\, make better business decisions\, and innovate. Creating the technical capabilities is challenging enough\, but enabling the existing Program Management Offices to correctly manage this new type of work is the bigger challenge. In this talk I will focus on a few methods and techniques to help manage the AI/ML programs from picking up the right business case\, to keeping the executive stakeholders informed\, to delivering the results successfully.\n\n  \nDecember 9\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Aligning Programs and Projects to Strategy \nDr. John Corso\, President at Strategent Corporation; Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies \n\nPrograms and their subordinate projects\, especially if they are transformational in character\, directly support the accomplishment of organizational strategy in crucial ways. Program/project managers must access the strategic management process to ensure their work aligns with the strategic objectives their work supports.\n\n  \nDecember 16\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Best practices in strategic alignment and benefits realization management in a transformation portfolio \nDr. George Moschoglou\, Associate Professor of Practice and Faculty Director at Georgetown University \nDaniel McCombe\, Head of Finance – Services & Transformation at Airbus \n\nThe lecture will cover best practices on how to align your transformation initiatives to the organization’s strategic goals and objectives (strategic alignment)\, how to translate business strategy drivers into expected benefits and evaluate the benefits achieved against original baselines (benefits realization and value management)\, and how to compose an optimal transformation portfolio to realize expected benefits under organizational constraints (portfolio identification and prioritization).\n\n  \nDecember 16\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Project Management @ Airbus Finance Transformation Office \nFranklin Ortiz\, Finance & Transformation Manager at Airbus \n\nLearn how to manage your organization’s top projects by applying project management principles and developing a strategy to help you gain leadership buy-in.

The society welcomes scholars and practitioners who are grounded in different expressions of Buddhism and Christianity\, and it encourages those who report on Buddhist-Christian dialogue and comparative study\, both as historical research and contemporary practice\, to employ analytical and theoretical tools and set their discussion within the framework of broader human history. As part of its annual conference\, the Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies will host two panels over two days: “Contemplative Practices and Religious Experiences: Buddhist-Christian Perspectives” and “Natal and Convert Christians and Buddhists.” \nContemplative practices and religious experiences are at the core of much of religious life in both Buddhist and Christian religious life. Yet\, they are often overlooked in the academic study of these religions and in religious studies generally. In the December 1 session\, four panelists will present papers that examine these overlooked dimensions of contemplative practices such as Buddhist meditation and Christian contemplation within a dialogical and comparative framework of religious experience in interreligious perspective. The December 2 panel will engage in a roundtable discussion about diverse patterns of religious life in terms of religious ideals\, praxes\, and social organization in Buddhist-Christian dialogical context to gain new insights into the strengths and weaknesses of natal versus convert religious belonging\, as well as the interaction between these demographics. \nThis event is co-sponsored by Georgetown University’s Department of Theology and Religious Studies and its Berkley Center for Religion\, Peace\, and World Affairs. \nInstructions to join each session will be sent via email prior to the event to anyone who has filled out the RSVP form. Each session will be recorded and captioned videos will be posted to the event page after the event date. Please RSVP to receive an email notification once they are posted. \nSchedule\n  \n\n\nTuesday\, December 1\n4:00 – 6:00 p.m. EST | Contemplative Practices and Religious Experiences: Buddhist-Christian Perspectives \nPaula Arai\, Louisiana State University\nPeter Feldmeier\, University of Toledo\nKevin Hunt\, St. Joseph’s Abbey\nKristin Johnston Largen\, United Lutheran Seminary\nRuben L.

This includes selecting initial steps in the requirements elicitation process\, discussing techniques used to elicit requirements and then classifying different types of requirements. Three experienced managers will discuss what works best for them and why\, and also will share lessons learned.\n\n  \nNovember 11\, 6:00 p.m. ET – The Journey of an Emotionally Competent Project Manager: Recipe for Success \nDr. Dereje Tessema\, Sr. Project Manager at USNRC \n\nThe presentation summarizes the levels of leadership from individual development to nation-building. Tools\, techniques\, best practices from the industry\, as well as challenges and opportunities (room for improvement)\, are listed for each leadership level. Dr. Tessema’s model\, “The Journey of Project Manager through various bits of intelligence\,” will be discussed.\n\n  \nNovember 18\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Introduction to Business Agility with SAFe \nJoe Vallone\, SPCT & SAFe Fellow \n\nBusiness Agility is the ability to compete and thrive in the digital age by quickly responding to market changes and emerging opportunities with innovative business solutions. Business Agility requires that everyone involved in delivering solutions—business and technology leaders\, development\, IT operations\, legal\, marketing\, finance\, support\, compliance\, security\, and others—use Lean and Agile practices to continually deliver innovative\, high-quality products and services faster than the competition. Join this event to learn the 7 core competencies to mastering Business Agility.\n\n  \nNovember 18\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Building Trust: The First Step to Successful Project Management \nA. Jamshed Adel\, Author \n\nThe number of failed and challenged projects are significant today despite considerable rapid advancements in the project management methods\, tools\, and techniques. Many factors contribute to project challenges and failures that could be classified into four major categories\, including poor planning\, poor execution\, poor quality control\, and poor communication. Building Trust explores TRUST as an essential tool to address these challenges\, enhance agility\, and ensure a vital first step toward successful project management. The book proposes an effective formulated strategy for project managers and leaders to build trust in their projects. The strategy discusses Empowering and E.M.P.O.W.E.R. (Establishing a Shared Vision\, Managing Expectations\, Promoting Creativity\, Optimizing Team Collaboration\, Walking the Talk\, Eliciting Feedback\, Readjusting as Needed) as the key interrelated principles to build highly trustful project environments.\n\n  \nDecember 2\, 12:00 p.m. ET – Facilitating EQ to drive High-Performance Organizations \nDr. Saya Sone\, Adjunct Faculty at Georgetown University \n\nWhen there is a gap between how people feel and how people perform at work\, we urge leaders to learn how to facilitate Emotional Intelligence to drive high performing workplaces. Leaders will acknowledge how people’s self-awareness impacts their behavior\, perception\, and acknowledgment of the way others feel. Primarily\, the presentation is aiming to help leaders learn how to openly and effectively express themselves and honor commitments in others. If leaders could utilize Emotional Intelligence when making decisions\, they could effectively manage their mood\, emotions\, and behavior. Consequently\, leaders could continuously improve themselves and positively influence others through problem-solving\, feedback\, and supporting others’ work. The goal of the presentation is to cultivate leaders’ abilities to manage their energy and turn into the needs of the group\, allowing them to provide the best experience to build high-performing organizations.\n\n  \nDecember 2\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Moving Beyond Scrum in Agile Projects \nDominic Lepore\, President at Terrapin Consulting \n\nScrum is the most popular Agile methodology.

They use AI/ML primarily to automate processes\, make better business decisions\, and innovate. Creating the technical capabilities is challenging enough\, but enabling the existing Program Management Offices to correctly manage this new type of work is the bigger challenge. In this talk I will focus on a few methods and techniques to help manage the AI/ML programs from picking up the right business case\, to keeping the executive stakeholders informed\, to delivering the results successfully.\n\n  \nDecember 9\, 6:00 p.m. ET – Aligning Programs and Projects to Strategy \nDr. John Corso\, President at Strategent Corporation; Adjunct Professor at Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies \n\nPrograms and their subordinate projects\, especially if they are transformational in character\, directly support the accomplishment of organizational strategy in crucial ways.
