The Annual Gladwyn Lecture 2019
Inclusive Growth in the Commonwealth:
A New Role for Universities
Speaker: Dr Rhonda Lenton, President and Vice-Chancellor, York University, Canada
President Lenton’s premise is that, in the interest of political and social stability, economic growth needs to benefit all segments of society, and that the universities are heavily implicated in all parts of the process: from promoting access to learning, providing the skills and knowledge needed in an economy defined by change, to a deeper engagement with the communities served by the institution.
Venue: Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Room Palace of Westminster, London SW1A 0AA
Date: Thursday 5th December 2019 | Time: 18:00 – 20:00 | Chair: Dr Alastair Niven LVO, OBE, Trustee
