Diederich Drop Ins Provide Opportunities for Students
On March 19th, the Diederich College was scheduled to host its annual Axthelm Lecture with Michele Steele of ESPN Chicago. The in-person lecture, like everything else, was canceled. The college was still able to host Michele on Tuesday in the first of a series of “Diederich Drop-Ins.” Using Microsoft Teams, guest speakers have been lined up to speak and interact with student moderators in the college. Michele Steele’s event drew nearly 70 student virtual attendees. While the schedule is still taking shape, Brian Anderson of the Milwaukee Brewers, Adam Collins, chief communications officer of MolsonCoors and Lisa Ross, US COO of Edelman are slated for future events.
