ARNE DUNCAN

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

 

Arne Duncan served as the U.S. Secretary of Education from 2009-2015. Currently he is Managing Partner at Emerson Collective, an organization dedicated to helping people live to their full potential by removing barriers to opportunity. Through partnerships with local business leaders, community organizers, and nonprofit groups, he aims to create job and life opportunities for disconnected youth between the ages of 17 and 24.

 

While U.S. Secretary of Education, Mr. Duncan helped to secure congressional support for President Obama's investments in education, including the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act's $100 billion to fund 325,000 teaching jobs, increases in Pell grants, reform efforts such as Race to the Top and Investing in Innovation, and interventions in low-performing schools. A Chicago native, Mr. Duncan also served as the Chief Executive Officer of Chicago Public Schools from 2001 to 2008.
