LEDx is a leadership event unlike any other. Building upon the success of last year’s inaugural event, LEDx 2.0 looks to bring together a diverse cohort of civilian and military professionals who share a passion for leadership in all its forms, focused on the topic of “Diversity at the Intersection of Leadership, Strategy, and Innovation.” LEDx differs from other leadership events in that it is designed around the ‘eXperience,’ where participants are just as likely to learn from the formal speakers as they are from each other. This year’s speakers and topics were chosen to present participants with various perspectives on leadership, from which to challenge their own assumptions and reframe the leadership challenges unique to themselves and their organizations.
LEDx is intentionally unorthodox in terms of its format. Built around a keynote address to begin and end each day, the rest of the schedule is focused on TED-style stage talks matched with smaller group speaker engagements in a “Lab” like setting. Apart from the keynote speakers, participants can build their daily schedules to match their interests. With food trucks, outdoor seating, and live music on site, the planned activities are just one part of the LEDx experience. When not engaged in one of the formal events, participants are encouraged to continue the conversation and share their thoughts on what “Diversity at the Intersection of Leadership, Strategy, and Innovation” means to them.
If you share our passion for leadership and want to join in the discussion, we look forward to seeing you in January!
