Diverse Ideas with Héctor Colón
October 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The LEC is excited to partner with the Roberto Hernández Center to bring UW System Regent Héctor Colón to the first Diverse Ideas of the Fall Semester! Héctor is the president and CEO of Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan (LSS). Colón was named the Nonprofit Executive of the Year by BizTimes Media and the Hispanic Man of the Year by United Migrant Opportunity Services. He also was a member and champion of the U.S. national boxing team, winning seven national titles and competing in the 1992 Olympic trials. “From Boxing Ring to Boardroom: Five Virtues For Life and Leadership,” his first book, was recently released. Food will be provided at this event.
Diverse Ideas is a talk series that partners with UWM offices to invite global and local entrepreneurs/community innovators for an intimate chat with UWM students, faculty, and staff. By offering these talks, LEC hopes to build a larger and more diverse network of students involved in entrepreneurship, including one that spans across disciplines and majors. Speakers share their stories and give advice in an open-forum conversation with attendees. Learn with us how to improve our community and work together to problem-solve.
