The Third Sector

| January 22, 2015

The Georgetown Public Policy Institute Conference Executive Committee is thrilled to announce the 2011 Conference Theme: The Third Sector. Why The Third Sector? It is currently the largest growing sector in the United States economy. Between 1993 and 2008, 30 thousand new nonprofit organizations formed each year, meaning that the nonprofit sector is growing faster than the economy as a whole. The Third Sector consists of a vast array of organizations that impact our daily lives, including: think tanks, private schools, private hospitals, advocacy groups, faith based organizations, community development groups, arts and culture organizations, foundations, public health organizations, and international human rights organizations. Each year, nearly 200 GPPI students, Consortium school students, policymakers and DC community members gather to attend the Conference. Past speakers have included Peter Orszag and Michael Chertoff and past themes have ranged from Youth Policy to Economic Recovery. With a significant portion of GPPI students pursuing careers in the Third Sector or careers in which they will partner with this sector, it is our goal is to bring together some of the most vibrant future-focused leaders and organizations to talk about this dynamic and growing part of the US economy.
