The Whitworth President's Leadership Forum series brings speakers to Spokane who represent a broad range of voices, perspectives and ideas. Whitworth faculty and staff are confident that Christian worldviews and the ideas of Christian thinkers are sharpened by rigorous and open intellectual inquiry and by engagement with the broadest spectrum of thought. This confidence motivates Whitworth to lead the way in inviting speakers who can help our community engage in critical and careful thinking, civil discourse and effective action.
