Blackfriars Lecture Series

Theme: Diversity and Empathy: Opportunities for Leadership

The Blackfriars Lecture Series has become the premier opportunity to showcase research and opinion leaders within the Canberra community.

Speakers are drawn from politics, academe and public life to develop a dialogue on a particular annual theme.  In 2017 the theme is Diversity and Empathy: Opportunities for Leadership and the speakers will challenge the community to enter more deeply into conversations envisioning Australia’s future and the qualities we need in our present and future leaders.
