The Leadership Lecture series features world-class, accomplished and influential leaders with expertise ranging from business and philanthropy to public service and academic research. The lectures in each year’s series usually begin with the first of four lectures in the fall. Our goal with this series is to allow our community to have access to the expertise, advice and best practices of some the world’s foremost leadership minds, and as such, the lectures are free and open to the public. The Leadership Lectures are presented with the generous support of Mercantil Commercebank.
Susan L. Taylor – October 4, 2016 at 9:30 a.m.
Founder & CEO, National CARES Mentoring Movement & Editor Emerita of Essence Magazine. After 27 years as the chief editor of Essence magazine and the visionary credited with building the brand, Susan L. Taylor left publishing to devote her life to building an organization that is devoted to breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty among African Americans. The National CARES Mentoring Movement is that organization: a community transformation crusade dedicated to “changing the predictable futures defined for our young who are struggling along the margins and living with the indignity of poverty,” she says.
