About the series

Rachel Krug ’04 and Juanita McGonagle ’04 founded the Leadership Lunch and Learn webinar series in 2014. Since then, the Class of 2004 has been transitioning the series to the Class of 2011. Nate Houghton ’11 and Cecily Pulver ’11 will continue to host the series for Second Decade alumni, organizing 2-3 webinars per year, featuring Cornell alumni speakers, moderators, and participants.

The series focuses on building skills and knowledge around career success, work-life balance, and leadership. Previous topics included “Igniting Your Inner Leader,” “The Killer Resume,” and “Social Styles in Leadership Communication.” Webinars follow a format of prepared remarks from the speakers, followed by a Q+A session of pre-submitted and live questions.
