Lessons in Leadership

A conversational webinar series bringing together members from the Brown community to discuss various perspectives on a timely topic.

The School of Professional Studies at Brown University invites you to join us for an intimate conversation with members of the Brown community to discuss important and timely leadership topics.

The Lessons in Leadership series features Brown constituents including faculty, alumni, students and friends offering their perspective on a given topic. These discussions typically feature a faculty member presenting an academic/research angle and a practitioner that offers an implementation, “boots on the ground” viewpoint.

Attendees of this webinar series will have the opportunity to participate in the discussion through a moderated Q&A with the presenters. This collaborative dialogue is intended to create a lively and thought-provoking conversation.

Please see below for the upcoming events, focused on healthcare as well as climate solutions.
