audio book clubs

Leadership Indianapolis has a long history of bringing together people from different professions, lived experiences, and perspectives to learn about community issues and leadership. Our audio book club is another way for us to do that. We believe our city and its future is strengthened when people are able to come together for meaningful civil conversations about important issues.

Don't just take our word for it.

I appreciated the curated conversation surrounding the book we read/listened to - it was thoughtful and also challenged my thinking, taking it further than if I had just read the book. I appreciated learning more about how the issues in the book related directly to our community and the encouragement to think about my role in helping to raise awareness/address this issue.
