A group of Wake Foresters gathered over dinner in Atlanta, GA on June 12, 2019 to discuss Leadership & Character.

Overview and highlights of our Call to Conversation:

  • We talked about the notable character we see in our community leaders, professors, bosses, children, and in our parents and grandparents. Ed Wilson is an admirable long time Wake Forester who’s name came up time and time again around our table as someone who exemplifies model character.
  • We told stories of faculty who “scoop up” students, fathers who lead by example, and friends who never give up on one another.
  • Words we used to describe those with good character included humble, honest, giving, loving, and integrity. Our themes included Servant Leadership, admitting when you’re wrong, children modeling character, courage to stand up and live out our values, and vulnerability.
