Walter Isaacson

The WEX Leadership and Creativity Event Series was created in 2010 to bring speakers or creative presenters of national or international renown to USM on an annual basis for the benefit of the entire community. This event is held each fall with proceeds supporting the invested and spendable endowed WEX Scholarship Fund at USM.  This fund provides financial support for students who are pursuing a career in the fields of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics.  Past speakers include Senator George Mitchell, Pulitzer Prize winner and investigative reporter, Bob Woodward, and renowned presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize winner, Doris Kearns Goodwin.

Join us for this year's event, The Innovators: How a Group of Inventors, Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution featuring President and CEO of the Aspen Institute and bestselling author Walter Isaacson.
