Leadership in Action: The Hill's Newsmaker Series

After a midterm election that saw a record number of women being elected to Congress and minorities making history, the balance of power in Washington has shifted. With Democrats winning control of the House and Republicans retaining their leadership of the Senate, bipartisanship will now have to become more than a buzzword. Can the new Congress prioritize collaboration and compromise over partisanship and rhetoric? 

Immediately following the midterms, The Hill will convene key leaders in Congress, the newly elected, and policy experts for a conversation about the kind of leadership the country needs and the value of finding common ground to solve some of the most pressing challenges facing the United States.
