Raymond Offenheiser, president of Oxfam America, is the featured speaker at the annual Chambers Lecture Series, sponsored by the Carroll School of Management’s Winston Center for Leadership and Ethics. In this lecture, which emphasizes the importance of social values in leadership, he describes his experiences at Oxfam America, “an international humanitarian and development assistance organization, dedicated to saving lives threatened by conflict and natural disasters and to promoting human dignity among the poor and disenfranchised of the world.” Offenheiser concludes with an enumeration of challenges that today’s generation of college students face, from harnessing the power of the information revolution to the ascendancy of India and China as superpowers. “What is your story going to be?” he asks. “What key question will fire your spirit and define the path you will choose? I’d like to challenge you to be moral leaders and leaders who care about the world.”
