Laxmi is a founding member of Leadership Now Project. Incubated in 2017 by a group of Harvard Business School alumni, Leadership Now activates the resources, networks, and skills of its members. We power reforms to our system through sophisticated analytics; engage in thought leadership; mobilize new investments in a portfolio of reform organizations like OpenSecrets and recognize political leaders who change the game and share our principles. Leadership Now is encouraging the business community to stand up and take action for the continuity of the 2020 Election and highlighting the role that business can play in solving the critical issues facing our nation as we transition to a new administration. We are also committed to moving from words to action to advance racial equity. Today, Leadership Now has members in six cities and continues to grow.
All of the events in the series will be offered via Zoom. Tickets are available for a suggested donation of $20, and can be ordered via the speaker series website, sdgspeakerseries.org.
