Our Courageous Conversations Book Study brings together faculty, staff and students at the Neeley School of Business to build community across differences, increase awareness of our own blind spots, and help align our behavior with intentions.

This semester we will have two separate book studies, one for students and the other for Neeley Faculty and Staff.
