“Conversations in Leadership” Series at the Powell Center–Eliot Spitzer
The third installment of discussions that I’m hosting this spring at the Colin L. Powell Center for Leadership and Service is rapidly approaching. The program, “Conversations in Leadership,” brings together experienced policymakers and opinion leaders from all levels of politics—local, state, national and federal—to discuss their substantive areas of expertise, their experiences working in and studying the public sector, and the lessons they have learned about effective leadership with the City College community.
On Tuesday, March 27, we are pleased to be welcoming Former Governor of New York State Eliot Spitzer. Mr. Spitzer is a lawyer, political commentator and Democratic Party politician. After graduating from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, he attended Harvard Law School where he served as editor of the Harvard Law Review. Mr. Spitzer clerked for US District Judge Robert Sweet and for top law firms including Skadden, Arps before joining the Manhattan District Attorney’s office in 1986. Twelve years later, he was elected New York State’s Attorney General, where he served two terms before leaving the position to become Governor of the state of New York in 2007.
We will be discussing Wall Street reform, the politics of New York State, and more. RSVPs are required. If you are interested in attending, please make sure to register here. Hope to see you all there!
