RVLS February 2
How do former Special Operations leaders succeed and adapt in an ever-changing global environment? How can military and business leaders learn from each other in order to spur innovation in their respective organizations? Join the Rice University Veterans in Business Association and the James A. Baker Institute Young Professionals for a discussion on Leadership and Innovation in the 21st century featuring Admiral William H. McRaven (ret.), Chancellor of the University of Texas System and former Commander, United States Special Operations Command.

William H. McRaven
Chancellor, The University of Texas System

William H. McRaven, a retired U.S. Navy four-star admiral and SEAL, serves as the University of Texas System Chancellor leading one of the nation’s largest and most respected systems of higher education. Prior to becoming chancellor, McRaven was the commander of U.S. Special Operations Command during which time he led a force of 69,000 men and women and was responsible for conducting counter-terrorism operations worldwide including Operation Neptune Spear, the special operations raid that led to the death of Osama Bin Laden on May 2, 2011. In June of 2016, United States Secretary of Defense Ash Carter named Chancellor McRaven as one of the first appointees to the newly formed Defense Innovation Advisory Board, advising the Pentagon on strategies to cultivate a culture of innovation in national defense.

The Rice Veteran Leadership Series is an annual event designed to engage the greater business community on the enormous value veteran leaders bring to the civilian workplace. This event features leaders who have excelled in business, the arts and public service. We hope that everyone will enjoy and engage the benefits that other veterans and Jones School graduates can bring to organizations. RVLS is a Veterans in Business Association (VIBA) sponsored event.
