Join this speaker series to hear from experts on 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?

You are welcome to attend Faith & Leadership events. There is no admission fee or reservation needed. Meetings take place on Friday mornings over refreshments from 7 to 8:15 a.m. All events take place at Kenilworth Union Church and are open to the public.
