WISER’s annual forum features the iOme Challenge winning team of college students who will report and discuss their advisory paper based on the 2020/2021 Challenge question. This year’s winning team is from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Read the press release and winning essay by Heather Quach and Victor Li, both rising juniors at UMBC.

The iOme Challenge is a WISER program that encourages younger generations to consider the status quo thinking about the current retirement systems and propose new ideas and policy recommendations. Each year, teams from across the country respond to the iOme Challenge question in the form of a 5,000-word essay and compete for the $5,000 prize and the opportunity to present their ideas to experts and policymakers.

A keynote speaker, panels of experts and congressional staff leaders will also discuss current issues and legislative proposals. This will be a virtual event. Questions? Call 202-393-5452 or email info@wiserwomen.org
