How do former Special Operations leaders succeed and adapt in an ever-changing global environment? How can military and business leaders learn from each other in order to spur innovation in their respective organizations? Join the Rice University Veterans in Business Association and the James A. Baker Institute Young Professionals for a discussion on Leadership and Innovation in the 21st century featuring Admiral William H. McRaven (ret.), Chancellor of the University of Texas System and former Commander, United States Special Operations Command and A. J. (Jim) Teague Chief Executive Officer of Enterprise GP.

The Rice Veteran Leadership Series is an annual event designed to engage the greater business community on the enormous value veteran leaders bring to the civilian workplace. This event features leaders who have excelled in business, the arts and public service. Past speakers have included former Governor and first Secretary of Homeland Defense Tom Ridge, former Heisman Trophy Winner and CEO Pete Dawkins, former Commandant of the Marine Corps James Conway and other distinguished veteran participants. We hope that everyone will enjoy and engage the benefits that other veterans and Jones School graduates can bring to organizations. RVLS is a Veterans in Business Association (VIBA) sponsored event.
