L.E.A.D., a Monthly Conversation Series Begins Feb. 19

L.E.A.D. Marygrove ConversationsNext Wednesday, Feb. 19, we will launch the L.E.A.D. Marygrove Conversations. Once a month, we will meet for an hour or two in the Student Center for a conversation about leadership, college, transitioning into adulthood, and much more! Any member of the Marygrove Family can come.

These conversations are set up around some of TedX’s most popular presentations. At the beginning of the conversation, we will watch a TedX presentation and then, as a large group, have some conversation about the video. Then we will break out into smaller groups to have more in depth conversation with faculty/staff facilitators.

When: February 19th at 12:00 pm

Where: Green and Gold Room

You won’t want to miss this! For our kickoff event, we will be showing and discussing Simon Sinek’s “How Great Leaders Inspire Action.” There will be pizza, pop and some small gifts raffled off throughout the event.
