About the Event
When learning about leadership, education, or entrepreneurship in Asia, students often hear abstract ideas and theories. The HKS student- and alumni-run Asia Leadership Trek allows students to visit and experience Asia, exploring political, economic, educational, and societal issues with government and business leaders, educators, entrepreneurs, students, and more. Hear stories from two of the leaders of this summer’s trek: Where did the group travel? Whom did they meet? And what lessons did the students bring home with them?

About the Series
The Ash Center Student Speaker Series highlights and explores the implications and lessons learned from the research projects or applied learning experiences of Harvard University students supported by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation. Each week, we invite two students to offer brief remarks on their work, or a response to one another’s work, and then open to table for discussion. The series will take place each Friday at 12 noon in the Ash Center conference room, 124 Mount Auburn Street, Suite 200-North. Lunch will be provided.
