The University of Georgia’s Mason Public Leadership Lecture has been rescheduled for 9:45 a.m. April 22 in the UGA Chapel. Originally slated for Jan. 30, the talk featuring Robert E. Rubin, co-chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations and former U.S. Treasury Secretary, was postponed due to severe weather conditions.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
Rubin served as Secretary of the U.S. Treasury from 1995-99. This followed his time as a White House assistant for economic policy and the first director of the National Economic Council.
A former co-senior partner and co-chief operating officer at Goldman Sachs, Rubin co-founded the Hamilton Project, an economic policy project housed at the Brookings Institution that offers a strategic vision and innovative policy proposals on how to create a growing economy that benefits more Americans. In 2010, he joined Centerview Partners as a counselor.
Rubin is author of “In an Uncertain World: Tough Choices from Wall Street to Washington,” a New York Times best seller and one of BusinessWeek’s 10 best business books of the year. He serves on the board of trustees of Mount Sinai Medical Center and is a member of the Harvard Corporation.
Supported by a donation from Terry College of Business alumnus and lawyer Keith Mason, who has held various public service roles throughout the past 20 years, the Mason Lecture is part of the Institute for Leadership Advancement’s student-led Terry Leadership Speaker Series. The lecture features prominent business leaders who have contributed significantly to their communities or spent time in a public service role.
