Lora M. Robins Speaker Series is a community-wide, multi-part interactive speaker series that offers business, public, and nonprofit leaders valuable insights and practical knowledge from leading national and regional thought leaders.
This year's three-part series explores the topic of education reform and will start by creating a foundation of understanding around the science of learning and development research. The second session will then focus on advocacy at the local and state levels, building up to the final session which will address policy change at the national level. Join us for this dynamic series that will bring together the leading ideas and best practices in education reform from around the nation.
All sessions are 8:00AM - 11:30AM
