SHRM Sponsor's National Journal's 'Compare the Candidates' Series

News Updates

With the two presidential nominees sharply diverging on key policy issues such as the economy, workplace policy and foreign policy, President Obama and Governor Romney will provide the American public with the starkest contrast since 1984 if not 1964.

National Journal will examine this clash of policy ideas, each candidate’s vision for America and a broad range of public policy issues destined to define the 2012 general election cycle.  Ronald Brownstein, editorial director for National Journal, will serve as lead moderator.  

On Thursday, May 31, from 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. SHRM will kick off its sponsorship of National Journal’s “Compare the Candidates" series with a policy forum event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. 

The event is the first in a series of three that will explore the 2012 Presidential Election and each candidate’s vision for America on a broad range of public policy issues.  The sponsorship will run until November 11, and will include print and digital advertisements as well as a presence at the Democratic and Republican National Conventions. 

The sponsorship is a unique, high-visibility opportunity for SHRM as National Journal is one of Washington’s most respected publications and a trusted source of information for members of Congress, the media, and SHRM’s advocacy-minded members.

It will also support SHRM’s governmental and public policy goals for 2012 and position the society as a though leader on issues such as workplace flexibility and the skills gap.
