The Harkin Institute Events
The Harkin Institute hosts regular events and programs, most frequently at its home at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. These special events, including lectures, receptions, and more, are focused not only around the institute’s four focus areas (Labor and Employment, People with Disabilities, Retirement Security, and Wellness and Nutrition) but also cover content related to other various issues affecting social justice, fairness, and opportunity.
