Our Speaker Series had its start as part of our monthly Thursday lunches and has grown to an event in it’s own right. With recent events, we, like everyone else worldwide, have had to adapt. We took the Speaker Event online and join together now, over Zoom. We still share a toast, visit, swap stories and more than a few long tales, but the heart of our time is the same–the Speaker Series.
View the month’s upcoming speakers below. You can also view a listing of our past presentations to get a feel of the full breadth of subjects covered. If you would like to present to us, please reach out on our Contact page.
San Francisco’s Native Son returns to Il Cenacolo to share his views on the major issues facing our City and what we can do about them. In particular, among the current challenges is a core of the central city that has become what is best described as a “ghost town.”
Steve Kreta will speak about the role maritime organizations have played in recent environmental disasters, and how government, private and educational organizations are responding to the call to help.
What role should ethics play in the production of knowledge? Professor George Barganier will discuss the idea that knowledge produced from the perspective of the most downtrodden has great potential to offer alternatives to the current problems of social inequality.
Mark Jaime of Dominican University will discuss their award-winning approach to the 21st century student––the thinker, the doer, the artist, the activist, the trailblazer, the entrepreneur–in response to the changing landscape of higher education.
