Join us as we kick off Pride Month with our Business Leaders Breakfast on Thursday, June 2 in Appleton at the Stone Cellar at Riverview Gardens. Our keynote speaker for this inaugural event is Mark Burstein, Lawrence University President.
Mark Burstein became Lawrence University’s 16th president in July 2013. His career has focused on the development of strategies and resources to empower individuals and their communities, primarily through his more than 20 years of experience in higher education.
He came to Lawrence from Princeton University where he worked for nine years as Executive Vice President, leading efforts to enhance campus life and modernize operations and infrastructure. Prior to that, he held several senior positions at Columbia University, including Vice President for Facilities Management and Vice President of Student Services.
He currently serves on the Vassar College Board of Trustees and on the board of ThedaCare, a community health organization serving more than 235,000 individual patients a year in northeastern Wisconsin. At the invitation of Mayor Bloomberg, he served on the mayor’s Applied Sciences Advisory Board, and he was Chair of the Board of Directors of The Victory Fund, a national political action committee based in Washington, D.C. focused on electing LGBT individuals to public office.
This event will feature networking from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., followed by breakfast, and then a great keynote and dialogue. We hope you’ll be able to make it.
