Briefings for Business Leaders

A signature program of the Lepage Center, "History Briefings for Business Leaders" bring historians and corporate leaders into conversation around topics of mutual concern.

Structured as 15-20 minute briefings followed by extended Q&A, the conversations offer the business community opportunities to engage with scholars working on issues that affect their customers, employees and markets.

The briefings emerge from the founding charter of the Lepage Center, which calls for a greater historical consciousness among elected officials, industry leaders and the public at-large.

The briefings allow businesses the opportunity to integrate more historical perspective into their operations, in order to expand their cultural awareness and guide their strategies and decisions.
