Faith and Work:
Reflections from The Leadership Roundtable's Kerry Robinson in America magazine
From the article: Our network is made up of senior executive leaders from all sectors and industries. These thoughtful, generous men and women-ordained, religious and lay-are chief executive officers, presidents, executive directors, generals and major religious superiors. They are people of profound faith and accomplishment. All Catholic, they come together to help the church respond positively to complex, contemporary and temporal challenges. Our work is neither easy nor expedient. Daily we contemplate the managerial, fiscal, administrative, personnel, communications and public relations challenges facing church leaders. Read more here.
From Aspirations to Action:
Solutions for America's Catholic Schools
Education, nonprofit, government, and Catholic sector leaders will gather in June for an action-oriented summit aimed at articulating solutions for America's Catholic schools. Creating sustainable models for our schools is a formidable challenge, one that must encompass the best ideas from every sector. Together, we seek to harness the collective energy aimed at strengthening Catholic schools, ensuring that future generations of students will continue to have access to the gifts of Catholic education. This gathering will bring together leaders from key fields to share their ideas and experiences, and work-group participants will then mold those insights into immediate solutions for Catholic education. For more information, contact Dylan Corbett.
