Curtis Lecture on Public Leadership: Eboo Patel
Eboo Patel is President of the Interfaith Youth Core, a Chicago-based international nonprofit that aims to promote interfaith cooperation.
Patel's lecture is this year's Curtis Lecture on Public Leadership. His lecture is titled, "Acts of Faith: Interfaith Leadership in a Time of Global Religious Crisis.
A leader defines reality. In a world too often convinced of the inevitable clash of civilizations, how do we lead our communities of faith to work with people from different religious and philosophical backgrounds and serve the common good? From Martin Luther King, Jr. to Mahatma Gandhi, Dorothy Day to Abraham Joshua Heschel, the answer was clear: interfaith leadership.
The Curtis Lecture on Public Leadership is free and open to the public.
