Recap from last year's BMGI
November 30 - December 1, 2017
Gaylord National Harbor
National Harbor, MD
Graduates of the Betsy Magness Leadership Institute (BMLI) gathered in National Harbor, MD, just outside of Washington, DC, for the annual Betsy Magness Graduate Institute (BMGI) program. Alumnae in attendance ranged from Class 4 to the most recent graduates of Classes 34 and 35.
Following an opening night reception where alumnae were able to recharge and reconnect, program participants embarked on a day and a half of focused learning. This year's program content addressed the importance of identifying and refining one's own leadership purpose, especially in the midst of industry disruption. Attendees participated in an experiential learning opportunity creating their own businesses, wherein they applied principles of design thinking to address the challenges facing their enterprise.
Attendees also participated in roundtable discussions facilitated by esteemed industry executives and luminaries. Topics included internal disruption, organizational strategies and challenging the status quo.
