The Ripple that Became a Tidal Wave: HIV/AIDS Activism and the Lessons for Transformative Leadership featuring Dr. Celeste Watkins-Hayes

All are welcome to join us at the Spotlight Series, with guided discussion, invited speakers, and lunch.

Through this talk about the remarkable conversion of HIV/AIDS from a death sentence to a manageable chronic illness over the last forty years, Dr. Watkins-Hayes outlines the importance of the transformative leadership that led the way to address this seemingly unsurmountable problem. She points to the importance of looking for leadership in unexpected places, the value of constructive conflict among diverse groups, and the willingness to talk about difficult issues exhibited by the HIV/AIDS community as useful lessons that can be applied to many of the challenges facing institutions.
