Public innovator Rich Harwood coming to Anderson, Elwood

ANDERSON, Ind. — Rich Harwood, president and founder of The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation, will travel to Anderson on Wednesday.

Sponsored by United Way of Madison County, Harwood will address people from the Anderson community at 10 a.m. at the Anderson Public Library, citing from his most recent book, “The Work of Hope,” on people’s need to turn outward toward the community and kick-start a new trajectory for the country. It’s part of Harwood’s Work of Hope community tour.

“I am continuing my tour in Anderson because I saw the potential of the community while working with the United Way of Madison County last year on their income mobilization initiatives,” Harwood said. “Their work is a great example of what can be achieved in Anderson when people start acting with members of the community rather than focusing on their own agendas.”

Following his speech in Anderson, Harwood will travel to East Main Street Christian Church in Elwood for a 7 p.m. speech with leaders and members of the community on how they can start working with all of Madison County to create sustainable change on the issues that people care about.

“Our work with Rich Harwood and The Harwood Institute has been instrumental in engaging organizations and individuals to think about what’s possible if we decide to do something together,” said Nancy Vaughan, president of United Way of Madison County. “Over the past two years as we’ve been using the Harwood tools, I have been amazed at the opportunities that have been unveiled, and am excited that we can share this inspirational work with everyone in Madison County.”

This stop in Anderson is the third stop in Harwood’s national community tour, to show that there is a way to restore belief in the country that people can still work together on important issues despite differing agendas. Through his tour, Harwood seeks to help the nation turn outward and ignite more compassion and concern for the common good.
