Stanton Distinguished Leaders Series Announces Podcast Edition

Georgetown McDonough’s Stanton Distinguished Leaders Series is proud to announce the launch of the Stanton Distinguished Leaders Series: Podcast Edition — made possible through the continued support of Georgetown parents, Daniel and Mary Stanton (P’12, P’14).

The podcast is inspired by the original Stanton Distinguished Leaders Series as another avenue to present the insights from executives who are renowned in their fields. Each episode follows a conversation where they share their unique experiences with the Georgetown McDonough community and engage in dialogue about leadership in an ever-changing world. 

“I’m delighted that the series will now reach a broader audience through the podcast edition. Audiences who could not attend these events now can listen to the inspirational stories anytime and anywhere,” said Daniel Stanton.

The first season of the Stanton Distinguished Leaders Series Podcast Edition draws from programs held over the last few years and addresses significant issues in the business environment, including diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), women in sports, sustainable business, artificial intelligence (AI), international relations, global markets, and more.
