Experience Hamilton: An American Musical in an exciting new way and meet the inspirational 2019 non-profit Leadership Award recipients.

To help commemorate the winners of the 2019 HBS Community Partners Leadership Awards, join Professor Dutch Leonard, the co-chair of HBS’s Social Enterprise Initiative, for his case study sensation “Leadership Lessons from Hamilton The Musical.”

As Prof. Leonard explains:
“We will listen to some of the music from Hamilton: an American Musical, review what the characters are saying and discuss which person may have been right and what lessons we can draw about our own conduct and effectiveness.”

Professor Leonard’s interactive discussion will be followed by the announcement & presentation of the Gold ($25,000), Silver ($10,000) and Bronze ($5,000) Community Partners Leadership Awards to our 2019 non-profit award winners.

This year’s Leadership Award competition was particularly vigorous with over 60 entries. As you learn more about the winners you will be struck, as we were, by their inspiring missions and accomplishments.

Please note that no refunds will be issued.
