Ideas Made to Matter Summer Series


Over the last few months, communities, industries, and economies have seen disruptions on a global scale, and leaders across all sectors are facing uncertainty and new challenges. MIT Sloan is uniquely positioned to address the challenges of this moment across every dimension.

Join us on Wednesdays in July and August for the Ideas Made to Matter Summer Series to hear how MIT Sloan faculty are approaching issues ranging from the impact of record-low oil prices to the way misinformation might impact the 2020 election to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. These sessions will be open to all MIT Sloan alumni, current students, and AdMITs. Each session will feature a 20-minute presentation by the faculty member and be followed by a 25-minute fireside chat moderated by Ezra Zuckerman Sivan. Please note that each session will have a separate registration link.
