University of Minnesota Cross-Sector Forum:

Leadership to Address Minnesota's Grand Challenges

Friday, October 25, 2013

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Mississippi Room, Coffman Memorial Union (maps) 

Across the University, there are many programs intended to elevate the leadership of working professionals.  However, for the most part, the University’s professional programs are as siloed as participant’s day-to-day work environments. We often don’t meet our peers from other sectors until crisis necessitates it. As a result, our solutions aren't as innovative as they might be.

Hosted by the University of Minnesota’s Center for Integrative Leadership, this Forum will engage professionals from executive leadership programs across the University in a unique day of cross-sector dialogue, skill-building, and network-weaving. We’ll collectively grapple with the “grand challenges” keeping you - Minnesota’s professional leaders - up at night.

Through this Forum, you will:

  • Expand your network of professional peers across multiple sectors.
  • Explore the application of an integrative leadership framework to how you approach your work.
  • Experience participatory approaches that can effectively facilitate cross-boundary ideation, collaboration and innovation.
  • Leverage diverse perspectives to explore new paths forward for complex issues you’re currently tackling in your work.
