On March 3, 2016, the Institute for Education held the Fourth Annual IFE Young Leadership Black Tie Dinner, graciously hosted by H.E. Jean-Louis Wolzfeld, Ambassador of Luxembourg. Throughout the evening, guests discussed a variety of far-reaching topics, such as self-driving cars and the importance of coding in a modern education, like the IFE founded CS@SC camp. The Ambassador even took the time to educate the visitors on the delicious Luxembourgian cuisine. IFE’s Founder and CEO, Coach Kathy Kemper, and IFE Fellow, Joanne Ke, organized the event, bringing together a diverse group of professionals, including a number of Presidential Innovation Fellows.
In attendance was IFE’s Distinguished Fellow, Dr. R. David Edelman, Special Assistant to the President for Economic and Technology Policy at the White House. IFE leaders, such as Peter Ruffo of ZTE, Quenton Horton the IFE Director of Interns, Mark Schulte the IFE Chief Technology Officer, and IFE Senior Fellow George Zaidan, co-host of CNBC’s new show, Make Me a Millionaire Inventor, joined in the celebration. Chris Golden, IFE Digital Innovation Fellow, spoke about the current presidential race, as guests enjoyed wonderful Luxembourgian wine. The evening celebrated IFE leadership’s dedication and commitment to their mission of connecting people and facilitating meaningful discussion of global issues.
