Upcoming LM Live Events

May 25 – Women’s Breakfast: Systemic Strategies to Combat Climate Change


We’ve all seen the futuristic images: Lower Manhattan’s piers completely submerged in water, the shoreline lapping up against skyscrapers. This doomsday scenario is starting to seem like an inevitability. But what if we could fight back against climate change using more impactful top-down solutions from city, state and community leaders, rather than relying on the everyday consumer?

Join Clare Newman, President of the Trust for Governors Island, and Julie Tighe, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters, in a conversation moderated by The City’s Deputy Editor Alyssa Katz about the work that their organizations are doing to preserve New York City’s livability. That includes conducting the research and devel­op­ment to build resilient and healthy urban neigh­bor­hoods, creating qual­i­ty green jobs for New York­ers with a diverse range of back­grounds and advocating for low-emission transportation and common-sense waste management.

June 9 – Train Your Brain for Creativity


Many of us have reached a critical phase of burnout, one in which just showing up for work zaps the energy we previously devoted to innovative thinking and inventive solutions. But no matter what field of work you’re in, you need to generate ideas. And to generate those ideas, you have to get creative.

The good news is, even if you feel like you’ve lost your creative spark, you can definitely get it back — it just takes a little training. Join RedBox Innovation consultant Edwin Garcia to learn an actionable method to bring creativity to any practice. Participants will explore strategies to create original ideas for any challenge and any industry. After generating your ideas, you’ll figure out how to choose the most appropriate creative solution and walk away inspired to do some serious out-of-the box thinking.

Date: Thursday, June 9, 2022
Time: 12:30 p.m.

June 14 – From Unconscious Bias to Conscious Inclusion


Unconscious bias is a “normal,” omnipresent tendency we all possess. It’s also something we have the capacity to identify and rewire. Not only is it an ethical business imperative to be aware of and counteract bias to welcome diversity and strive for inclusion, but it’s also an opportunity to strengthen our relationships and increase collaboration. And, of course, identifying your biases and cultivating diversity is just one step towards true inclusion — as Vernā Myers once said, “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.”

In this interactive workshop, GoldJam Creative founder Jen Jamula will walk participants through these important processes.

Date: Tuesday, June 14, 2022
Time: 6 p.m.
