The Name Game: Helping Athletes Get the Most Out of Their Identities
Loyola University Museum of Art, Chicago IL
Pursuit of Passion
This half-day session will aim to help athletes identify, mobilize and capitalize on opportunities to leverage their celebrities. Athletes are unique in their ability to inspire large groups of people with single acts. However, with great exposure comes great responsibility. Plenty of bad deals are out there to be made, and plenty of bad apples with open palms may try to exploit athletes’ fame and influence. But with a little knowledge and preparation, athletes can use their fame for good.

CTBA - Center for Tax and Budget Accountability "social and economic justice through data-driven policy" Illinois General Fund

College of Complexes
The Center for Tax and Budget Accountability was formed in 2000 to be a bipartisan, nonprofit research, and advocacy think tank that works across ideological lines to promote social and economic justice for everyone, from traditionally disadvantaged populations to the middle-class. Given how rancorous the current political environment is in our nation, the charge to design policy reform initiatives that were not only rigorous and evidence-based but would also bridge rather than reinforce ideological divides was both prescient—and crucial.
