Society places great value on creativity and innovation in many fields, such as business, the arts, technology, and education. How can we encourage and manage these two critical elements for a successful future across diverse academic and professional fields?

Cecilia-Rios-Aguilar, CGU associate professor of education, School of Educational Studies.

Maritza Salazar, CGU assistant professor of organizational behavior, School of Social Science, Policy & Evaluation.

Panel Moderator: Thomas Horan, CGU professor and director, Center for Information Systems and Technology.

The forum begins at 4:30 pm in Albrecht Auditorium, 925 N. Dartmouth Ave, in Claremont. The event is free, but RSVP is required.

A reception and the presentation of the 2014 CGU President’s Art Award will follow.
