About this Event

The 2020-21 Lougheed College Lecture series is organized around the theme of leadership and public institutions. Governments, courts, universities, cultural institutions, public health agencies, financial regulators and other offices charged with ensuring the public good face special scrutiny from the people they serve. We expect our tax-funded institutions to deliver value for money, and to act ethically and responsibly to ensure citizen well-being. And we have high demands for accountability and responsiveness. What does it take to lead such organizations, especially when the decisions are fraught and the stakes are high? How do public leaders engage the people they serve in decision-making? How do they address dissent and controversy? What are the consequences of “fake news,” the growing skepticism around expertise, and political polarization for the necessary work of serving the public good? Our speakers will tackle these challenging issues with hard-won insights from the front lines.

Tricia Smith addresses the topic, Leadership in the Olympic Movement in Canada as a featured guest of the Lougheed College Lectures.

From doping to bribery; expense and politics, and tensions over the COVID postponement of the 2020 games, the Olympic movement has had to deal with some serious reputational blowback. To our credit, Canadians have been at the forefront of upholding Olympic values against some significant challenges. Join PLLC to hear Tricia Smith
