2015-2016 Lunch & Learn Lecture Series

The Center for Leadership and Management and the Management and Policy Concentration are pleased to present their 2015 - 2016 Lunch & Learn Lecture Series over the fall and spring semesters. 

The purpose of this series is to provide the MAP students and guests with the opportunity to meet leaders and managers in the public, non-profit, and private sector. The series is an excellent opportunity for future agency managers and those interested in agency management to explore the guests’ journeys and ask questions about their experience in the management, leadership, and policy arenas. 

For the fall semester, the first "Lunch and Learn" will take place in the 7th floor classroom at 390 George Street on October 14, 2015 from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm and will feature Natasha Johnson.
