This speaker series addresses the challenges of upholding a Christian life in a fast paced, competitive work environment. How can we maintain our values as we seek professional growth and face obstacles in the workplace, community, and at home? How can faith and religious principles undergird decision-making for ethically sound organizations? These and similar questions are addressed by accomplished leaders who join us as guest speakers to share their personal stories and hard-earned wisdom.
All are welcome to attend Faith & Leadership events and there is no admission fee or reservation needed. Meetings take place either on Friday mornings over refreshments from 7 to 8:15 a.m., or on Thursday evenings from 7 to 8:15 p.m. All events take place at Kenilworth Union Church, 211 Kenilworth Avenue, Kenilworth, Illinois.
