Search for Meaning: Empowerment Series

December 3, 2018

As we welcome a new year, we would like to introduce The Search for Meaning Empowerment Series. Many of you will recognize this title from The Search for Meaning Book Festival. The “Search for Meaning” will continue as a lecture series, but will expand from the original concept to curate a larger scope of people, such as artists and prominent figures, who address this broadly inspired human search to make sense of the world. Last year the School began experimenting with such speakers in the 2017-18 academic year, inviting Muhammed Yunus, the Nobel-prizing winning economist and pioneer of the microcredit and microfinance movement; Khizr Khan, the Pakistani-American lawyer and Gold-star father who lost a son in the Iraqi War in 2004; James Comey, the former Director of the FBI; and former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee, John Kerry. All of the speakers addressed capacity crowds.

We hope you will join our transformational journey with The Search for Meaning Empowerment Series for the human quest to make deeper sense of all the changes in the world.
