Widener to Honor Boeing President/CEO at Voices of Leadership Event

Widener University will honor Dennis Muilenburg, president and CEO of Boeing Defense, Space & Security, at the Oskin Leadership Institute’s Voices of Leadership event on Thursday, November 1. The Voices of Leadership event celebrates the Oskin Leadership Institute’s mission to perpetuate and strengthen Widener’s long and noble tradition of inspiring students to be strategic leaders and responsible citizens who possess the character, courage and competencies to affect positive change throughout the world.

This event will profile Muilenburg, who is leading Boeing's $32 billion defense sector during some of the aerospace industry's most challenging times.

"In many respects, Dennis Muilenburg exemplifies the values Widener University has honored since its founding in 1821," said Widener University President James T. Harris III. "Mr. Muilenburg's achievements challenge our students to develop the courage, character and core competencies needed to be effective leaders like him for their generation. This inspiring event gives area leaders the opportunity to learn from another's leadership experiences."

The event will feature a question-and-answer session with Muilenburg hosted by General John H. Tilelli (USA, Ret.), and will be attended by civic and business leaders. During his on-stage conversation, Muilenburg will discuss personal leadership experiences, and why courage and integrity are key characteristics of strong leaders.
