Noah Kirkwood with Doug Elmendorf, the dean and Don K. Price Professor of Public Policy at the Kennedy School of Government. Each year, our team hosts a moderated conversation at the Kennedy School’s “Open Forum.” Noah first met Dean Elmendorf at the conversation between Harvard Basketball alum and former Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, and David Gergen, Director of the Center for Public Leadership at HKS, and senior political analyst for CNN. In a later meeting, Dean Elmendorf spoke to Noah about an upcoming trip he would make to Canada, and about Noah’s hometown just outside Ottawa.
