An Event That Changed the Way I See the World—2017 GLS Faculty Spotlight

Bryan Stevenson has been called one of World’s Greatest Leaders. He is committed to defending the poor and wrongly condemned, and has galvanized a movement to re-examine the roots of mass incarceration in America. His work in justice is fueled out of his willingness to get close to difficult problems and to do uncomfortable things. We are thrilled to welcome and learn from him at the Global Leadership Summit in 2017.

In this 3½-minute video, Bryan tells the story of how one inmate’s experience changed his leadership.


Guest faculty members are invited to participate in The Global Leadership Summit based on proven leadership abilities in their field of expertise. Their beliefs may not necessarily reflect those of Willow Creek Association and Willow Creek Community Church, and their presence at the Summit does not imply blanket endorsement of their views or affiliations.
