Leadership Lecture Series welcomes Michael Pollan

Michael Pollan, author of four New York Times’ bestselling books, spoke at Dominican University of California on May 20, as part of the University’s 2013 Institute for Leadership Studies (ILS) Spring Leadership Lecture Series. The series is offered in partnership with Bay Area independent bookstore Book Passage.

Pollan’s appearance was in partnership with Dominican’s MBA in Sustainable Enterprise (Green MBA) program.

For the past 25 years, Pollan has been writing books and articles about the places where nature and culture intersect: on our plates, in our farms and gardens, and in the manufactured environment. In 2010, he was named to the TIME 100, the magazine’s annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people. In 2009, Newsweek named him one of the top 10 “New Thought Leaders.”

The Leadership Lecture Series is a cooperative effort between Dominican’s Institute for Leadership Studies and Book Passage. Each year, the Leadership Lecture Series features some of the country's leading figures from the world of business, politics, entertainment, academia, and literature. All lectures are open to the public. The ILS Spring 2013 Leadership Lecture Series is sponsored by Private Ocean, the Marin-based wealth management company.
