Luncheon and Main Stage Event: Doris Kearns Goodwin

Doris Kearns Goodwin is a world-renowned presidential historian, public speaker and Pulitzer Prize-winning, New York Times #1 best-selling author. Her five-decade career studying American presidents began in President Lyndon B. Johnson’s administration when she was selected as a 24-year-old White House fellow. Her work has captured turning points in American history including the three historic civil rights bills that Johnson steered through Congress — ending segregation in the South, legalizing voting rights for African Americans and Fair Housing — all of which changed the face of our country. As we are seeing tremendous change in Michigan in our leadership and political landscape, Goodwin will share what she has learned about leadership in advancing equity and what that means for all of us as aspiring and established leaders.
