Current Season

Hot Lunch is a lunchtime discussion series featuring nationally recognized speakers from outside of Colorado. These monthly speakers are invited to engage Colorado education, policy and business leaders in conversation about the current national challenges and promising practices in education today. Presentations are followed by facilitated open discussion designed to provoke unconventional ideas on how to apply the shared learning to the Colorado context. It is co-sponsored by the The Piton Foundation | Gary Community Investments

Check back every month for the line-up and please contact us with ideas for speakers.
