Inspired by dramatic data-driven safety increases in the aviation sector, the U.S. Department of Transportation has adopted a Safety Management System approach to reduce death and injury across transportation modes.

A Spring Seminar Series with Carlos Monje Jr., Beeck Center Senior Fellow

Donald Trump’s first 50 days in office have shown that it is not easy to transfer best practices from one sector (business) to another (government). Operating in the public arena brings a host of challenges that can thwart even the best-intentioned policies. This spring, Beeck Center Senior Fellow Carlos Monje will lead a 3-part seminar series to take a deep dive into these challenges and share insights from his experience as a top official in the Obama Administration.
