Come join us for a once in a lifetime conversation with Carolyn Lukensmeyer, an icon in the field of Organization Development. Carolyn will share stories, answer question and lead a dialogue.
This event is a fundraiser for the newly revamped Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS). LIOS is being resurrected after it closed in 2018. This time LIOS will be an independent stand alone College which means there is a lot of work that needs to be done. All proceeds and donations will go towards basic school operations, student tuition back up, and scholarships for underfunded students.
Thanks for being part of this amazing conversation and helping us recreating this important educational institution.
This Fireside Chat will take place on October 13, 2022 starting at 6:00 pm PST.
