Mission-Driven Leaders: Past Speakers

How can Cardinal Stritch graduates be successful in meeting the challenge of balancing people, planet and profit? Attendees at the Mission-Driven Leaders (Formerly Business Leaders with a Conscience) Speakers Series learn from leaders in the field who have discovered responsible ways to navigate complex business environments and who want to employ people who know how to collaborate and make decisions that are innovative and ethical.

Each presentation takes place in the Sister Camille Kliebhan Conference Center in Bonaventure Hall at Cardinal Stritch Univeristy and all are welcome. There is no cost to attend, compliments of the Cardinal Stritch University Alumni Association and University Advancement. Space is limited. RSVP online by visiting www.stritch.edu/alumni or call (414) 410-4939.
