The team, along with their faculty advisor Nancy Kimelman, visited Washington DC  June 24-26, 2015 where they shared ideas, research, and policy recommendations with decision-makers in a public forum hosted in collaboration with the Women’s Institute for a Security Retirement (WISER) and various small-size meetings with members of the Administration, Members of Congress, and others.

The topic of this year’s challenge was to write a policy advisory paper and prepare a video addressing the preparedness of states for future retirement challenges of the Millenial generation.
