Leadership at Lunch is a noontime series of conversations that focuses on current events in Bloomington and Monroe County. In Fall 2020, race, politics, and the pandemic permeate every conversation. With these themes top-of-mind, we will explore how our community is responding; effects on our local economy; education and childcare; leadership; resilience; and more.

Whether you're new to the community or looking for a deeper dive into local current events, this lunchtime series will provide increased perspective, valuable insights, and an expanded network of people and resources.

Developed by the LBMC Alumni Board, this series is open to all. Stay tuned for additional presentations.

Join Leadership Bloomington-Monroe County for a presentation on From Enemies to Friends.

Americans are (obviously) deeply divided today. We must find ways to rediscover bonds that harmonize our relationships with each other. This presentation looks at the way that—apart from government and politics—we can take steps to stop thinking of each other and instead, to regain our friendship through "cultural artifacts" such as music, sports, film, and yes, even our pets. We'll explore some new ways to use these artifacts in conjunction with psychological models of moral and spiritual development in our work life and other day-to-day interactions
