Wanted: Courage, Compassion, and Character - Leadership for the 21st Century


October 11, 2008

Time: 9:15 - 11:00 AM (doors open at 8:15 AM)
Location: Maples Pavilion
Sponsor: The Roundtable at Stanford University
Event details:


In the last century the world faced great challenges – totalitarianism, economic depression and world war. Great leaders emerged to guide us with courage and skill, defending the public good.

As the 21st Century begins, we face not one great national and global threat, but many. Religious and ethnic violence, climate change, dwindling resources, economic turbulence and poverty and disease among the world’s most vulnerable threaten our wellbeing and our very existence.

These times will test not only Americans, but all nations and all people. Leaders will be called upon to meet these complex and daunting challenges.

What kinds of sacrifices will we be prepared to make, and is there another “Greatest Generation” of leaders in the wings? Will we have what it takes to progress as a society?

Join renowned journalist and this year’s moderator Tom Brokaw with a distinguished panel of leaders for the third Roundtable at Stanford University.
