Organized by the U.S. Basic Income Guarantee Network, Basic Income Canada, and Silberman School of Social Work (Hunter College) Associate Professor Michael A. Lewis, this year’s Congress will bring together researchers, activists, policymakers and students from around North America and around the world who focus on universal basic income guarantee (BIG) policy.
Kicking off the NABIG 2017 conversation, this event will feature a panel discussion between four speakers – Karl Widerquist of BIEN; Andy Stern, author and former SEIU President; social policy analyst and writer Diane Pagen; and Michael A. Lewis, Associate Professor at the Silberman School of Social Work – moderated by Natalie Foster, an expert on the future of work and adviser to the Aspen Institute Future of Work Initiative. Their discussion will include time for dialogue with audience members.
