The George Washington University’s School of Business will host Conversations on Creative Leadership, a series of high-impact talks with leaders who are shaping the 21st century. The first event in the series will explore creative leadership through the lens of special guest Marin Alsop, conductor and music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Profiled in TIME and named one of “America's Most Powerful Women” by Newsweek, Ms. Alsop will discuss being—and becoming—a “first woman” in a male-dominated profession and how leading an orchestra serves as a metaphor for leading society. Hosted by GWSB Dean Doug Guthrie, the series explores the role of creative leaders in bringing together the business community, academia, government and the nonprofit sector to solve society's most intractable problems.
