CEOs: Dedication To Community Tour


What good’s an education if you don’t know how to apply what you’ve learned to the real world? It’s a question being raised by those who say that American education places too much emphasis on book learning and not enough on practical application of knowledge. Now, a group of CEOs is going around the country working to change that model. They’re making a stop in Charlotte and you’ll hear what they have to say about that and about finding passion in your work.

Dedication to Community (D2C) Tour will present “Empowering Dreams: Realizing the Future” at UNC Charlotte’s Cone University Center on April 10, 9:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. Information here.
