Mary Immaculate College will once again host the McAuley Lecture Series on Thursday 27th May 2010.

Mary Immaculate College is once again hosting the McAuley Lecture Series and the title of this years conference is

The Emerging Challenges for Leadership in Ireland Today.

Given the fact that the leadership in so many of our institutions has been found less than satisfactory, it is time that we looked critically and constructively at how leadership is being exercised in Irish public life and explore ways in which fresh vision and Christian values can be brought to bear on it. The forthcoming conference offers the opportunity for this kind of exploration through a series of workshops lead by key figures in public life, the Churches, education and the community and voluntary sectors.

Key Topics Include Challenges for Leadership in the Following Areas:

  • Politics & the Public Service
  • The Church
  • Education
  • Community & Voluntary Sector
