Board Chair Jennifer Dzen shared her Commencement Address

"Commencement address is meant to be the dance of youth and wisdom", said Board Chair Jennifer Dzen. Ms. Dzen shared five principles that have guided her:

  • Fine tune your moral compass
  • Own your actions
  • Make meaningful mistakes and mistakes that are meaningful
  • Respect the most and the least powerful person in the room
  • Give back - your time, talent, knowledge and gifts

You can watch the full Commencement address HERE.
