Leadership for Society: The Podcast

Join Professor Brian Lowery as he sits down with prominent leaders for a series of conversations on the most pressing issues of today.

This podcast is based on senior associate dean for academic affairs Brian Lowery’s course, Leadership for Society, which explores topics at the intersection of business and society through broad discussions about the most urgent challenges the world faces — including broadening inequalities, a worldwide pandemic, racial inequities, and more.

The goal, says Lowery, “is to create reasoned, fact-based discussions and debate that prepare students to engage in the world and to develop into the leaders that our society needs.”

Season One of the podcast, titled Race and Power, examines the way race interacts with structures of power, and how systemic racism manifests itself in institutions and our daily lives.

“We Need to Stop Tiptoeing Around Race”

Lowery speaks with Quita Highsmith, VP and Chief Diversity Officer at Genentech, and Simone Hill, MBA/MA ’14, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategist at Omidyar Network who are working to steer their organizations toward a new definition of corporate responsibility and leadership.
