(Indianapolis – August 1, 2022) – The International Center has selected 20 participants for the third annual James T. Morris Global Leadership Series.
The 2022 Morris Series cohort is composed of global professionals from across Indiana, hailing from Franklin to Bloomington and everywhere in between. The participants represent a wide range of industries, including technology, media, academia and more.
The Morris Series is a five-month professional development program for Hoosiers who demonstrate business or civic leadership with a global component. Inspired by Jim Morris’ vast experience as well as The Center’s mission to support global initiatives across public, private and civic sectors, the sessions will discuss global leadership across government, business and humanitarian efforts. The series will begin in August and conclude in December.
The program is presented by Genesys with support from the Herbert Simon Family Foundation and Indiana Language Roadmap.
“As we begin our third year of the Morris Series, we are excited for these Hoosier leaders to dive into global leadership in corporate, humanitarian and governmental settings – and see the unique opportunity for these leaders to connect and learn from each other.”
