The Way Forward Leader Lunch Break: Dr. Amy Acton
March 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
*Special two-year pandemic retrospective*
The Way Forward Leader Lunch Breaks are a series of virtual (via Zoom) discussion and workshops on topics to help you move forward in our new and uncertain world.
Dr. Amy Acton, Former Director, Ohio Department of Health
The leader we all wish we had IS YOU
Join Dr. Acton for a discussion on her time as director of the Ohio Department of Health and how she ended up in the cross hairs of history, as well as what public health is and why it matters to all of us. She’ll also delve into three leadership concepts: brutal honesty, vulnerability, and empowerment, plus the underlying concept of “own it.”
Dr. Acton will conclude with lessons learned and share thoughts for emerging as a community (specifically Cleveland, and writ large), as well as our current inflection point and why she sees tremendous opportunity from the disruptions – a future full of challenges, but also a time for healing and hope.
Leaders are needed now more than ever before, please help us to build our leadership today and for the future. The Way Forward Leader Lunch Breaks are offered for free but donations to support continued CLC programming are appreciated!
