Purpose of this Challenge Paper

This Challenge Paper should serve two purposes:

First, to help prepare us to engage in an efficient, effective dialogue-a conversation that (a) starts now, (b) receives a powerful stimulus at an in-person meeting on November 14, and (c) continues until mid-December to shape some concrete, "Everest-worthy" opportunities for action.

Second, to help us to find those concrete action steps. this topic is so important…and can so easily descend into hand-wringing about broad social forces beyond our control. For this dialogue to be worth our while, I want us to push one another toward practical, scalable ideas.
