CCAL Research Roundtables

The CCAL Research Roundtables are an example of our commitment to bringing applied research on leadership, ethics, governance and performance challenges confronting business leaders to our community.

These curated small-group discussions are designed to stimulate both research and business thought-leadership.  In this forum, business leaders have the opportunity to hear first-hand from researchers while scholars have the opportunity to learn from the extensive experience of business practitioners.
