Lesley University proudly presents the Boston Speakers Series, an outstanding opportunity for our community—and Greater Boston—to benefit from the perspectives of national and world leaders, authors, activists, historians, humanitarians, and other influential individuals.

As we deepen our century-long tradition of service to others, we seek to build knowledge and engage the community in meaningful discussion. The Boston Speakers Series is an extension of our mission to educate others, shape the future of bold ideas, and expand our global outreach.
