The Center for Integrative Leadership seeks to foster cross-sector and boundary-spanning leadership to address significant societal challenges (sometimes called Grand Challenges) for a greater good.
One week after putting the finishing touches on her dissertation, Jennifer Pelletier still has energy and enthusiasm to present the results of her research to interested audiences. This month’s Bagels Beyond Boundaries, sponsored by the Center for Integrative Leadership (CIL), attracted an audience of individuals from the MN Department of Transportation, the Urban & Regional Planning department, St. Paul community organizing councils, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and more. The diversity in the audience reflects the nature of the broad appeal of Dr. Pelletier’s research. Dr. Pelletier’s work highlights a case study for a cross-sector collaboration that is behind Minnesota’s rise to national leadership in promoting safe routes to school for children.
