Event Details

   The third annual Iowa Ideas Conference is scheduled for October 3 & 4 in downtown Cedar Rapids. A limited number of tickets are available now until August 2 for $150. You can view the complete list of sessions and confirmed panelists at www.thegazette.com/2019IowaIdeasConference.

   So what is Iowa Ideas? Iowa Ideas is a nonpartisan, statewide initiative to gather people from various perspectives and discuss issues impacting the state—now and into the future. Conference attendees are able to customize their conference experience to fit their own interests, moving between tracks while networking with people of varying backgrounds. Each session will feature a panel and moderator format, encouraging audience participation and interaction. 

   Attendees will have several opportunities to gather as one large group throughout the day and half. Attendees will begin their day with an opening keynote from Jason Sole and Andre Wright, co-founders of Humanize My Hoodie, on Thursday morning that will offer a dynamic way to communicate the goals of the conference - challenge assumptions, respect perspectives and work in collaboration to create solutions. The group will reconvene again as a whole for the lunch keynote featuring former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack, offering thoughtful insight on Iowa’s past, present and future.

    Thursday night, attendees will be welcome to attend a variety of evening activities, including the very popular “Pints and Politics” event which is held throughout the year by The Gazette and Iowa Public Radio and broadcast live on Ben Keiffer’s “River to River” program.

   Thanks to collaborations with community groups Inclusive ICR and the Impact CR, the Young Professional and Diversity, Inclusion & Equity tracks that will return again this year, weaving among the other tracks.

-          Agriculture

-          Diversity, Inclusion & Equity
