Hear from some of the most influential and impactful members of our community speak on their success in entrepreneurial leadership. We will discuss the leadership opportunities and challenges associated with starting new businesses, and their unique ability to stimulate social change and community development.

There are few careers more capable of influencing the way we live and work than the revolutionary work of an entrepreneur. They provide jobs, wealth, standard of living improvements, and conditions for a flourishing society and economy. Entrepreneurs have the unique ability to create social change and drive community development through the creation of new businesses.

In this installment of the Perspectives on Leadership Lecture Series, we will explore leadership and opportunity in entrepreneurship. You will hear from a panel of influential guests in a variety of sectors: Attorney Samarria Dunson, Owner of The Dunson Group, LLC; Dr. Mark Martin, CEO of Build UP; Jennifer Mims, Restaurateur of Real and Rosemary; and Joan Smith, President of Axilus Technology Development.

They will speak on not only the impact entrepreneurship has on the community, culture, and society, but also how they achieved success in their field as leaders. The event is co-sponsored by: Alpha Kappa Psi, American Association of University Women, Collegiate Entreprenuers' Organization, Culverhouse Real Estate Society, Forza Financial, Future Black Law Student Association, Pre-Law Student Association, and Society of Women Engineers.
