We are offering online book clubs hosted by Lisa Amonson and Laura Kennett. Books clubs are open to all alumni of Leadership Calgary, Leadership Edmonton, Introduction to Human Venture Leadership, and Integrity Leadership, and their guests.
An hour will be focused on the recommended reading and 30 minutes will be dedicated to talking about any promising resources people have found during the month.
