While a new administration inspires optimism, it remains important to not fall into complacency. As host of "The Next Four Years" podcast, the Washington Post's Eugene Scott will speak on "An America as Good as Promised," how that looks in the context of a new administration, and what work still needs to be done.

Following Scott's keynote remarks, attendees will be able to ask questions.
