The Wisdom Dialogue Series connects thought leaders with nurses and other stakeholders to explore career lessons and wisdom gleaned over time. Thought leaders are nursing influentials who have distinguished themselves in the profession through their exemplary leadership roles. The goals of this project are to harvest the personal and professional wisdom of leaders and stimulate dialogue and insights among invited participants. At the program’s close, a summary of themes generated by the conversation will be shared with participants.
