Do stories in the Coloradan ever make you think differently, inspire you to want to learn more or even take action? Have you ever brought up the topic around the dinner table or shared the story with a fellow CU Boulder alum? That kind of community-led discussion is the impetus for the new dialogue series: Coloradan Conversations. 

Each Coloradan Conversation will bring alumni together to discuss a singular topic or theme relevant not only on campus, but around the world. Rather than listening to a lecture, this series invites alumni to engage and connect with thought leaders and fellow Forever Buffs about topics presented in the Coloradan alumni magazine.

Coloradan Conversations: Leadership

Wednesday, Sept. 8, 5:30 p.m. 

At this virtual event, attendees will discuss the evolving nature of leadership, a topic highlighted in the Summer 2021 issue. Panelists will include moderator and former Denver City Council President Albus Brooks (RelSt’01), Shilo Brooks, faculty director of the Engineering Leadership Program, Stefanie K. Johnson, associate professor of organizational leadership and information analytics, and Brian Muriithi (CTD’23), a student in the Engineering Leadership Program.

The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to developing the next generation of great leaders. Among them are the 2021 Student Leaders of the Year as presented by the CU Boulder Center for Leadership
