"My Harkness moment is a recurring one in busy meetings with smart and opinionated colleagues. I remind myself to really listen to and respect the various opinions and to be brave about lending my voice to the conversation. It is a reminder to be open-minded and always participate. "

~ Kerry Landreth ‘91
