Although the struggle for England’s throne was never simple, the kingdom lasted for over a millennium before the sovereignty passed outside a direct familial line. But when an inept ruler — indecisive, frivolous and vain — angered the established nobility, one man interceded in the transition of power and sparked a civil war that would last 86 years.
Shakespeare & Leadership features a staged reading of excerpts from the play, performed by leaders from the business community alongside professional actors. The reading is followed by a panel discussion in which the participants address leadership questions and themes raised in the text.

Sachiko Akiyama’s work brings together artistic influences of Brancusi, Egyptian funerary sculptures, medieval Christian woodcarvings, and contemporary sculptors with the artist’s personal experiences and Japanese heritage, notably Japanese fairy tales. Her carvings convey a sense of centeredness and direct connections to nature that opens up the door to creation mythologies and other mystical possibilities. The figures’ relationships to flora, fauna, and the elements speak metaphorically to the ways we find meaning in our lives and meet the challenges of our surroundings.
