Our political system in America is broken, right? Wrong. This is exactly how the system is designed to work — it just wasn’t designed to work for us, the American people. In this inspiring talk, nonpartisan political innovator Katherine M. Gehl explains how we can reinvent our elections & get better results out of Washington. Katherine M. Gehl is the founder of The Institute for Political Innovation, a nonpartisan nonprofit founded in 2020 to catalyze modern political change in America. She is the former president and CEO of Gehl Foods, a $250-million high-tech food-manufacturing company that she sold in 2015. In the public sector, Katherine served on the Board of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). In 2020, she published The Politics Industry: How Political Innovation Can Break Partisan Gridlock and Save Our Democracy.
