2019-20 Theme: Igniting New Perspectives

This year’s theme of Igniting New Perspectives is meant to challenge the way our participants view leadership, the world, and the way we interact within it.  Through reframing our perspectives we can cultivate a culture of understanding, innovation, and growth.
