Apr 9: Inspire lecture with Michael Slaby and Debra Lam

Were you one of the millions of people who marveled at the level of engagement in the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns? Something new and different took shape to create a buzz like we'd never seen before. While the two elections were quite different—one included a little-known "long-shot" junior senator from Illinois and the next featured an accomplished incumbent—both employed the same secret weapon...Michael Slaby. Slaby was THE guy behind the use of media and digital technology in these campaigns and many others since then. With majors in creative writing and biotech from Brown University, Michael Slaby has been referred to as possessing a Swiss Army knife of skills. His work on Obama for America, F*ck Cancer, LiveStrong, and Bright Pink, and for the United Nations and U.S. State Department demonstrates that a combination of passion for mission and deliberate strategy can result in unbelievable levels of engagement.
Debra Lam is a key in Mayor Bill Peduto's quest to create the "Next Pittsburgh." Charged with using innovation, technology, and sustainability to meet administration goals, Lam is helping the mayor define our region's future. With experience in global consulting and design and published articles on sustainable development and urban resilience, Lam offers a well-rounded perspective on global practices that can be applied to make Pittsburgh a world-class city with an engaged and efficient government.
