Golden Tribe Lecture Series

 

The Golden Tribe Lecture Series was re-established in Fall 2010 to provide the student body with a series of speakers sponsored by the Student Government Association in collaboration with Union Productions. The Golden Tribe Lecture Series is an academically focused speaker series, which attempts to connect students to outstanding individuals who are either experts in their field or working at the forefront of a relevant political or social issue. The mission of the series is to engage students in issues and dialogue that will positively benefit their overall academic, scholastic, or humanitarian experience.

At the forefront of one of the world’s most successful news site and a key figure in the current communications revolution, Arianna Huffington discusses the new media, politics, the economy and lessons she has learned on the road to success.

 

Arianna Huffington is among the most influential players shaping the national conversation on politics, the economy, the media and public policy. An entrepreneur and business leader, Huffington provides an informed view on the state of the current business landscape and the impact of our financial policy on the future of the economy.

 

Her access to Washington’s key decision makers, as well as global and business leaders, allows her to provide a fresh and in-the-know perspective on today’s current events, culture and politics. Celebrated for her work as the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the must-read Huffington Post, which in 2012 won its first Pulitzer Prize, Huffington has garnered worldwide acclaim, including being named in 2011 to the TIME 100, the magazine’s annual list of the most influential people in the world; Vanity Fair’s 2011 Powers That Be list; Fast Company’s list of the 100 Most Creative People in Business; Financial Times’ 50 Faces That Shaped the Decade; Newsweek’s Top Ten Thought Leaders of the Decade; and Forbes’ Most Influential Women in the Media (2012) and The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women (2012 and 2013).

 

She is the author of over a dozen books, including Third World America: How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream (2010). Her new book, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder (March, 2014), debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and follows up on the success of her acclaimed Third Metric conference, offering women (and men) a new definition of success, one that focused not only on career advancement, but on the equally important goals of health and wellbeing, personal fulfillment, giving back and living a life of purpose and meaning.
