Washington, DC is the political capital of the United States. But, what else does it have to offer? DC Dialogues and NYU DC's Student Life Team led the first first student workshop of Spring 2017. Students visited three innovative and diverse organizations, then met with NYU young alumni living and working in Washington, DC for a panel discussion.
Students visited the 1776 Incubator, American Enterprise Institute, and Groom Law Group. After a brief tour, students had the opportunity to meet and speak with experts from each organization.
Following the site visits, students learned how NYUDC alums started their careers in the nation's capital from a panel in the Abramson Family Auditorium.
This event offered students an insider's look at the city they called home for the next four months.
At its core, 1776 is a global incubator and seed fund that helps engineer the success of the world’s most promising startups tackling important challenges in areas like education, health, energy & sustainability, and transportation & smart cities.
AEI is a public policy think tank dedicated to defending human dignity, expanding human potential, and building a freer and safer world. their work advances ideas rooted in their belief in democracy, free enterprise, American strength and global leadership.
Groom’s practice groups combine in-depth specialization with a global perspective on the benefits landscape to offer clients unparalleled coverage of issues and disputes arising from ERISA, the Tax Code, securities laws, HIPAA, COBRA, and the many other laws that govern employee benefits.
