Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management will present Building a Better World Through Business, an annual series of events celebrating ways that businesses create sustainable economic and social development in their communities. The series will take place March 26–28, 2019, on Loyola’s Evergreen campus.
The Building a Better World Through Business event series begins with a keynote address by Bill Strickland, executive chairman of the Manchester Bidwell Corporation—an extraordinary jobs training center and community arts program. He will present “The Art of Leadership, and the Business of Social Change,” on Tuesday, March 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the McManus Theatre. A reception and book signing will follow the presentation.
Strickland leads his staff in working with corporations, community leaders, and schools to give disadvantaged children and adults the opportunities they need to build a better future. His centers are open in many cities across the country including Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, San Francisco, Grand Rapids, New Haven, Boston, and Buffalo; with many more in the planning stages, including international centers in Israel, London, and Japan.
Strickland is also the author of Make the Impossible Possible, a recipient of The White House’s “Coming Up Taller” Award, and the founder of the Grammy-winning MCG Jazz, the most successful jazz subscription series in America. He was named one of the 25 members of the White House Council for Community Solutions by then-President Barack Obama and was honored by the United States Senate for his contribution to social innovation.
