Speaker: Avik Roy, President, Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity and Opinion Editor, Forbes

Avik Roy is the president of the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity (FREOPP), a non-partisan, nonprofit think tank that conducts original research on expanding opportunity to those who least have it. Roy’s work has been praised widely on both the right and the left. National Review has called him one of the nation’s “sharpest policy minds,” while The New York Times’ Paul Krugman described him as man of “personal and moral courage.” He has advised three Republican presidential candidates on policy. As the senior advisor to Perry’s campaign in 2015, Roy was also the lead author of Perry's major policy speeches; The Wall Street Journal called Perry’s address on intergenerational black poverty “the speech of the campaign so far.” Roy also serves as the opinion editor at Forbes, where he writes on politics and policy, and manages The Apothecary, the influential Forbes blog on healthcare policy and entitlement reform.

Lecture 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Door open at 4 p.m. Reception to follow.
