LIFE Series

Leadership & Innovation for Everyone = LIFE

Everyone can benefit from adding leadership and innovation skills to their life toolkit.

Part of the mission of Grinnell College’s Wilson Center for Innovation and Leadership is to inspire and prepare students as leaders and innovators. We want to help emerging leaders and innovators understand key traits and practice critical skills, recognize their aptitude and embrace challenges, and help reveal common traits between leadership, innovation, and a liberal arts education. To do this, the Wilson Center invites successful leaders and innovators to provide instruction and mentorship at key events in our LIFE Series.
