Askwith Forums

Throughout 2020, HGSE’s centennial year, we are hosting the Future of Education series, in conjunction with Askwith Forums. The Future of Education is HGSE’s Centennial discussion series, meant to explore challenges and solutions, share new knowledge, and foster constructive conversation about the most important issues in education. These convenings will dig deep into critical topics and big-picture ideas, with scholars, practitioners, and thought leaders from across and beyond the education sector. Similar to the Askwith Forums, the Future of Education series will focus on a range of topics that are important today and destined to become more important in the years to come. They include access and equity, immigration, leadership in complex times, the ethics of education, and the power of the arts in education, among other topics.

About Askwith

All programming is free and open to the public, and are a vibrant part of the HGSE community. The forums highlight leaders in the field to share new knowledge and generate spirited conversation, and provide an opportunity for practitioners, policymakers, and researchers to share their work, talk with one another, and advance proven practices that will improve learning opportunities for all children.

Audiences generally include community members, local educators, and a wide range of professionals and parents with a keen interest in improving education, as well as HGSE faculty, staff, and students. In most cases, the events are live-streamed, recorded, and made available online. Askwith Forums bring over 4,000 people to campus annually and engage over 6,000 online.

Prominent speakers have included U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, noted academic Noam Chomsky, Children's Defense Fund Founder Marian Wright Edelman, former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, and Khan Academy Founder and Director Sal Khan.

The Askwith Forum was established in 1998 by the children and grandchildren of Herbert Askwith AB'(19)07, a noted New York City public-relations consultant, writer, and publishing executive.
