After last week’s retraction, the McDonough School of Business Communications Department finally established that Bono will be talking about social enterprise at Georgetown next Monday. In the new event description, Bono’s lecture is described as a talk about social enterprise and the “power of social movements to create change.”
CEO of Bank of America Brian Moynihan will introduce Bono with remarks, followed by President John J. DeGioia.
The Atlantic will also be the media partner for this event. This means Georgetown will host the first event in this year’s Washington Ideas Forum, which lasts from November 13 to 15th. The forum is a partnership between The Atlantic, the Aspen Institute, and the Newseum to bring together top international leaders for a series of lectures.
Last year’s Washington Ideas Forum hosted speakers such as Vice President Joe Biden and House Budget Committee Chair Paul Ryan, as well as the CEO of Starbucks and Katie Couric.
