Bearcats Lead wordmark

The UC Alumni Association is excited to launch BEARCATS/Lead, a series of thoughtful, interdisciplinary conversations with subject matter experts in the UC community. BEARCATS/Lead will cover leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship and much more – and all alumni are invited to participate.

As a part of BEARCATS/Lead, this year Lindner College of Business Dean Marianne Lewis is beginning a nationwide tour. As our world becomes increasing fast-paced and complex, we face ever-competing demands and expectations. We’re dealing with pressure to balance the local with the global, and to be more flexible as we plan our lives and our work. It can be intimidating – but Dean Lewis is coming to share some solutions!

Each attendee will leave with a copy of Dean Lewis’s new book, Both/And Thinking: Embracing Creative Tensions to Solve Your Toughest Problems.
