(Indianapolis  April 12, 2021) – The application period is now open to participate in The International Center’s James T. Morris Global Leadership Series. Interested individuals can apply on The Center’s website from April 12 until June 1.

The Morris Series is a five-month professional development program for Hoosiers who demonstrate business or civic leadership with a global component. Inspired by Jim Morris’ vast experience as well as The Center’s mission to support global initiatives across public, private and civic sectors, the sessions will discuss global leadership across government, business and humanitarian efforts.

Hosts for each of the monthly sessions will be high-profile organizations that play a key role in Indiana’s global landscape.

“After such a successful launch in 2020, we are more excited than ever to bring together a new cohort of global leaders in 2021,” says Martin Baier, president and CEO of The International Center.
