Dynamic EQ Speaker Cory Booker Offers Insights on Ethical Leadership


A progressive politician, Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker will address ethical leadership as part of Enduring Questions: The Mark Collier Lecture Series on Jan. 19, 8 p.m. in the Kulas Musical Arts Building, 96 Front Street, Berea.

Booker, a lawyer and a Rhodes Scholar, has earned a reputation of being a tireless and charismatic leader with innovative ideas and bold actions. He has been defined as a devoted community activist, problem solver and passionate advocate for social justice.

Now in its fifth year, Enduring Questions Lecture Series was developed to broaden an individual's understanding of what it means to be human, as well as how humans relate to each other and the environment. The Enduring Questions program was established in honor of Dr. Mark Collier, long-time BW professor, dean and past president (1999-2006).

This year's theme continues to study human behavior with lectures centered on the business world, as it explores how corporate scandals, political cover-ups and personal misconduct can strangle the reputation of leaders and their organizations. Amid pressure to survive in stable economic times and an ever-changing regulatory environment, today's leaders face challenges as well as opportunities.

Booker's presentation is sponsored by the MLK Week Committee, the Academic & Cultural Events Series, the David Brain Leadership Program, the Office of Core Curriculum and the Office of Multicultural Student Services.

Enduring Questions presentations are free and open to the public. For more information, please call 440-826-2325 or visit the Web site for driving directions to campus
