The Library of Congress has books in 470 languages–Napoleon was afraid of cats — a porcupine is born with 30,000 quills –we are living in an age of information. Information has value, sometimes great value.  Information can save time and effort.  Information can even save your life.  The value of information, facts, data, and such, depends on what we make of it.  Abigail Adams put it perfectly more than 200 years ago.  “Learning is not attained by chance.  It must be sought with ardor and attended with diligence.”

On the morning of Thursday, November 5th, the Women’s Policy Forum is holding the Second Annual Emerging Issues Symposium:  Roadmap to the Future:  Health, Education, Policy and Business in 2030.  The keynote is Stephen L. Klineberg, Professor of Sociology at Rice University.  He is a well-respected demographer and a dynamic speaker who offers insights into the future of large metropolitan areas similar to our Fort Worth community.   In addition, there will be four breakout sessions for you to choose on hot topics important to many of us living and working in Tarrant County.  This morning of learning was planned and designed with the Tarrant County woman in mind and will be filled with current information to expand your knowledge base about important issues in  health, education, policy and business through a looking glass.

So don’t take a chance and miss this lifelong learning opportunity.  Reserve your spot by October 29th.  Consider inviting a friend and a colleague to sign up too.  Registration information can be found under the events tab at: www.womenspolicyforum.org
