2015 Spring Leadership Forum to focus on Next Generation Leaders


Courtney Martin

The Indiana University East Center for Leadership Development’s 2015 Spring Leadership Forum will be presented by Courtney Martin an author, blogger and speaker. She will present “Next Generation Leaders.”

The forum will begin with a continental breakfast and networking at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 21, in the Whitewater Hall Community Room. The program is from 8-9 a.m. and will be held in Whitewater Hall Vivian Auditorium.

The annual Spring Leadership Forum is a breakfast keynote session focused on leading edge ideas and practices.

Martin’s diverse portfolio career is united by two obsessions: storytelling and solutions. She has been called “one of our most insightful culture critics and one of our finest young writers” by Parker Palmer, and her writing has been described as “varied, transformational, and necessary for us all” by Jane Fonda and “a hardcover punch in the gut” by Arianna Huffington.

Martin is a weekly columnist for On Being, a Peabody Award-winning public radio conversation, podcast, and Webby Award-winning website. She is currently working on a book titled The New Better Off, exploring how people are redefining the American dream (think more fulfillment, community, and fun, less debt, status, and stuff).

There is no charge to attend the program; it is underwritten by the IU East School of Business and Economics.

Registration is required. RSVP online at iue.edu/leadership.
