Indicators of Real Change
The Guyana Conference "Aspirations for Real Change" took place on April 8, 2016 at the University of the District of Columbia in Washington DC. The conference was co-chaired by Adjunct Professors Floyd Haynes and Paul Nehru Tennassee. About 70 academics, practitioners and collaborators attended. The purpose of the conference was to discuss the challenges facing Guyana and spark a non-partisan dialogue that will result in the development of recommendations for practical solutions that will lead to real change.

This conference hosted three sessions to examine broad themes that are integral to Guyana’s economic and social development.
1. Governance, Transparency and Accountability – A Participatory Model
2. National Identity – Moving Beyond Race
3. The Role of the Diaspora – A Framework for Collaboration
