The Stanford GSB Washington DC/Baltimore Alumni Chapter invites you to join us for the Stanford GSB Leaders Forum, a new monthly series designed to foster thoughtful and provocative conversations on leadership, management, and the world.

In an era of hashtags and soundbites, the Leaders Forum is designed to encourage deeper discussion in an intimate setting to enlighten, educate, and inspire innovative ideas to tackle the greatest challenges of our times.

Each month, we will select a book or a set of longform articles to set the theme. When possible, we will invite the authors themselves to lead the discussion. Participants' reading of the book is preferred but not required.
