Join us for a "Leadership in a Time of Crisis" Coffee Talk featuring Professor Mike DiBerardinis and Christine Piven, executive director of adult education at the Office of Children and Families for the City of Philadelphia.

"Leadership in a Time of Crisis" Coffee Talks are offered to current students as a unique “off-record” opportunity to discuss current events and relevant policy issues with active practitioners. These talks are small by design and allow students to gain insight and learn valuable lessons on public sector leadership.
