THE WALLACE CENTERS OF IOWA: sustainable food & civility initiatives

Civility & Leadership Lunches

Insight into effective leadership and civility practices

The Wallace Centers of Iowa’s Spring 2017 Leadership & Civility lunch series will be announced soon. Each luncheon will feature a speaker from the greater Des Moines community.

The lunch and learn programs lead to understanding and awareness of current topics, connection to community resources, and inspiration from other experiences.

Cost for each lunch is $25 per person, or $80 per person for all four lunches. Reservations are required and can be made by emailing Deborah Boyer or calling 515.243.7063. Please provide information about dietary restrictions in advance.

Winner of the 2011 Better Together Award from the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines, The Wallace Centers of Iowa also provide workplace civility training.

I came here today thinking [that] being organized was no big deal and that I probably wouldn’t learn much, but you have changed my whole perspective. I am leaving here in the different mindset than when I came and I have a lot to think about. Thank you for sharing your story. –2016 attendee
