Local Leaders, Global Impact Series Enters 8th Season
Since 2012, Northeastern University’s Charlotte campus has hosted a Local Leaders Global Impact Series that pairs local leaders with relevant Northeastern faculty.
Topics are always timely and have run the gamut from sports leadership and cybersecurity to urban planning and data analytics. The goal of these events has been thought leadership and community engagement.
“From the beginning, we knew we were on to something with this series based on speaker and faculty excitement to participate and sometimes standing-room only audiences,” said Richards, who has served as CEO & Regional Dean since the Charlotte campus opened in October 2011.
The 2019 Fall lineup features impressive speakers including:
