1.  Read pages 78 to 86 in your “A Study of Change” textbook.  Please consider traveling back in time to go to dinner with President Abraham Lincoln and his good friend, Frederick Douglass, in 1865. Please list 3 questions you would ask Frederick Douglass during the course of your meal.

  • Encourage you to continue to push yourself out of your comfort zone and build confidence
  • Expand your network of talented, trustworthy, diverse people
  • Learn more about the benefits of collaboration, diversity, persistence and creativity
  • Learn about the culture, employment/intern opportunities and business model of one of Providence’s fasting growing and fun companies – Teespring
