The Leadership Exchange: Real Conversations with Leaders Making a Difference 

A speaker series from the Do Good Institute featuring exciting and innovative nonprofit and social impact leaders sharing their diverse perspectives on a range of nonprofit, philanthropic, and civic sector challenges and important leadership lessons.

Taking place on a (mostly) weekly basis during the fall and spring semesters, join us on Thursdays to learn from leaders who are creating change and lasting impact, now. 

Each Thursday conversation begins at 12pm with a 30 minute interview. After the formal interview concludes, we'll open up the conversation for informal networking and the opportunity to ask your pressing questions.
