Boswell event alert: Michele Wucker at University School for a Gray Rhinos Forum on Friday

Friday, January 5, 6:30 pm, at University School of Milwaukee, 2200 E Fairy Chasm Rd:
Michele Wucker, author of The Gray Rhino: How to Recognize and Act on the Obvious Dangers We Ignore.

University School of Milwaukee's Speaker Series welcomes Michele Wucker, commentator and policy analyst, to campus, for a Gray Rhinos forum. This forum will be part of the Global Scholars Crisis Simulation. Individuals in the USM and greater Milwaukee communities are invited to attend this event at no cost. Light refreshments will be served.

A Gray Rhino, as opposed to a Black Swan, is a highly probable, high impact yet neglected threat. Gray Rhinos are not random surprises, but occur after a series of warnings and visible evidence. Floods in Houston, devastating wildfires in California, and the rise of mass shootings are timely examples. But leaders and decision makers continue to keep failing to address obvious dangers before they spiral out of control.

Wucker is a sought after public speaker who has received a 2007 Guggenheim Fellowship for her work on changing views of citizenship. She has been recognized as a 2009 Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, a 2008 Young Leader of the American Council on Germany.

Registration is requested for this event.
