This week, LEAP CEO, Dr. Clayton Lawrence, is honored to attend another White House Briefing led by President Obama’s Senior Advisor, Valerie Jarrett.
WASHINGTON – Nov. 29, 2016 — In his second invitation to a White House Briefing led by President Obama’s top officials, Dr. Clayton Lawrence remains focused, connected, and committed to advancing national initiatives that will best serve the citizens of D.C. and citizens all across the country.
From Monday November 28th through Wednesday November 30th, Leadership Greater Washington (LGW) is hosting a series of events that highlight the introduction of LGW’s Leadership Exchange Program. A program stemming from its partnership with Leadership Greater Chicago, the Leadership Exchange Program brings in “other leadership organizations from around the region and in other metropolitan areas” and is “focused on building connections around shared challenges and opportunities.”
An inductee into Leadership Greater Washington in 2013, Dr. Lawrence has been strongly involved in and supportive of the opportunities that LGW has provided local business and community leaders to engage in White House events. “Leadership Greater Washington is a phenomenal organization that cultivates exceptional leaders. It paves pathways for leaders to immediately get involved in the most critical topics impacting our country, and events like these ensure that we are focusing leaders around working together to make positive change,” Lawrence stated.
Reflecting on last year’s White House briefing and commenting on hopes for the new administration, Dr. Lawrence continued stating, “As one of those in attendance at last year’s briefing, it was an unprecedented opportunity for me to hear, firsthand, the accomplishments and important changes that President Obama and his administration have made over the last 7 years. This year, I am looking forward to determining where I can lend my support to the new administration in order to keep the country moving in positive directions that will best benefit the American people.”
The heart of the Leadership Exchange Agenda began this morning with a 8:00-11:00 a.m. briefing with Senior Advisor to President Obama, Valerie Jarrett, along with other White House Officials. The briefing took place in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. The remainder of the day and week will include several panel discussions and will conclude with a tour of the National African American Museum of History and Culture. nike air max schwarz nike air max schwarz nike air max schwarz
