LEADERSHIP QUEST RECRUITMENT RECEPTIONS

Each year, LMR accepts a diverse group of community leaders into its flagship program, Leadership Quest. Through a ten-month program — which includes formal community leadership training, access to high-impact decision-makers, and networking opportunities to name a few — these individuals develop the necessary framework to make a positive and lasting impact in the greater Richmond Region. Join us for an evening of conversation and refreshments to learn more about the organization and the application process. We hope you will consider applying for the Class of 2021.

LORA M. ROBINS SPEAKER SERIES
Community leaders have the desire and charge to increase opportunities for families and children, yet often efforts are dampened by systemic inequities based on race, gender and economic status.  These are not issues of the past.

This year the Lora M. Robins Speaker Series will present three nationally known thought leaders who will share their perspectives on the persistence and widening of racial and class inequities in education, the workplace, and throughout society. Join us in moving from aspirational ideas to ACTION.

Tickets: $50 per session
Student tickets also available (must be enrolled full-time)
*Please note: All registrations are final;
there are no refunds unless the event is cancelled.

WOMAN SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

Creating safe spaces that require trust, invite vulnerability and foster relationships among this region's community leaders is part of the LMR mission.  On the first Thursday of every month, LMR in partnership with Rita Ricks (LMR '89) will host a small group of female alumni for authentic conversation around both their challenges and their hopes for the future.  We must be comfortable speaking our truth and be comfortable with some disagreement.  It's how we grow and make a difference.

LMR ALUMNI ONLY

DATE: First Thursday of the month
TIME: 6:00 - 8:00PM
LOCATION: 9211 Forest Hill Avenue
