Created thanks to the generosity of Georgetown alum Jon Baker, Sr. (C ’64), the Baker Center for Leadership and Governance will move beyond the conversation and put public service into action. Too often, partisanship, public alienation, lack of leadership, poor governance, and preconceived agendas don’t allow for new ideas or varying perspectives in addressing our common challenges. The Baker Center is focused on breaking through that. Working throughout the year with leaders of business, industry, academia, the non-profit sector, and government, the Baker Center will sponsor a variety of programs that focus on research-based solutions to a pressing issue of our time. That work will culminate each year with the Baker Forum, an annual global gathering where government, business, nonprofit and academic leaders will make tangible commitments to affect change. The issue selected for the first Baker Forum is restoring economic growth while ensuring more broadly shared prosperity.
