The SUSI on Economic Empowerment will broaden participants’ understanding of U.S. history, institutions, government, society, and culture in relation to the issue. While exploring sub-themes like economic opportunity and prosperity, creating sustainable economies, economic inequities, financial access and inclusion, entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial ecosystems, social entrepreneurship, social capital development, financial literacy, organizational development and management, and preparing for the future of work, participants will receive an overview of the U.S. economic system and structures.
The Institute will put equal emphasis on American history and modern society, including the ongoing political, social, and economic discussions in a pluralistic society.
Through fundamental discussions on entrepreneurship and social capital as well as capacity development workshops, participants will also learn about economic empowerment. These hands-on lessons will cover business modeling, leadership and management abilities, and financial literacy.
