Greenleaf Public Policy Lecture


The Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership is proud to present the Greenleaf Public Policy Lecture. The vision of the Greenleaf Public Policy Lecture is to create a viable opportunity to assess societal challenges through the lens of Robert Greenleaf’s credo, particularly as it relates to building a more just and caring society. The lecture convenes thought leaders and issue experts from a range of sectors to examine policy alternatives that address the needs of people most disempowered by socioeconomic inequities.

2021 Greenleaf Public Policy Lecture:

The theme for the 2021 Greenleaf Public Policy Lecture was: Servant Leadership for a More Just Society. With this theme, the Center convened a virtual gathering of national thought leaders to examine policy alternatives that hold promise for addressing the needs of economically disadvantaged and marginalized communities. Cecilia Muñoz, former Director of the White House Office of Domestic Policy for President Obama, delivered the keynote address. Panelists included Deborah Smith-Gregory, President of the Newark NAACP, and Chris Emigholz, Vice President of the New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA). The lecture was moderated by Caryl Lucas, Founder of the Unstoppable Girls Foundation.
