Invitation to a Seminar: What Matters to Americans: Social, Political and Economic Values

You have been invited to a seminar presenting a new public report from The Anatomy of Civil Societies Research Project entitled:

"What Matters to Americans: Social, Political and Economic Values"

The project’s leader, Professor Timothy Devinney, will present results from this unique global study that identifies the social, economic and political issues that concern Americans today, and what influences their preferences when it comes to philanthropy and other forms of support. The report provides a nuanced picture of the values of the American population; the seminar will delve deeper into the meaning of the results, and discuss how these results compare to other parts of the overall research project being conducted around the globe (including a recently launched report on Australia and reports on the UK and Germany to be presented in September and October).

The report and the discussion will help your organisation with its engagement with, and appeal to, key stakeholders. There will be an opportunity for a lively discussion on how the results can be applied in corporate, governmental and non-governmental settings.

The Anatomy of Civil Societies Research Project is a 5-year global project funded by the Australian Research Council and various groups and funding agencies around the globe.  Its team includes researchers in North America, Australia, and Europe.   The seminar is free and part of our global outreach program aimed at disseminating our findings and maximizing their impact with multiple and diverse stakeholders.
