Does Democracy Work? Or are we setting ourselves up for failure? The 2018–19 Jepson Leadership Forum hosts politicians, political advisors, and experts on poverty, elections, and technology for a case study of American democracy. We’ll explore the good, bad, and ugly of U.S. politics and government as we ask the question “Does democracy actually work?”

Since 1992, the University of Richmonds Jepson School of Leadership Studies has explored how visionary leaders bring people together and drive change. The 25th anniversary Jepson Leadership Forum invites you to explore your own vision. Join us as we confront some of the most critical and divisive issues facing our world today — from wealth and social inequality to terrorism — and learn to analyze your information, express your opinions, and even change your mind.
