The Hope and Howard Morry Global Leadership Initiative

Aug 15, 2019

On October 23, 2019 the Canadian Associates of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev will host a Gala Dinner honouring Hope and Howard Morry, featuring Guest Speaker Professor Alan Dershowitz.

The event will take place at the RBC Convention Centre on Wednesday, October 23, 2019. Co-chairs are Benjamin Hecht, Jeff Norton and Larry Vickar and the Honorary Patrons are Gail Asper, Marjorie Blankstein, Phil Fontaine and Bob Silver. The evening will be hosted by Chuck La Flèche and moderated by Jack London.

In Hope and Howard’s own words, “We are truly thankful for being recognized by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, one of Israel's great institutions of higher learning, and for being associated with the legacy of one of our heroes, David Ben-Gurion”.

Proceeds from this event will be directed to an exciting new project:

In alignment with David Ben-Gurion’s vision, the Hope and Howard Morry Global Leadership Initiative envisions a holistic leadership concept that will build bridges across communities and disciplines, learn from top leaders and inspire the BGU community to become leaders that will impact the Negev, Israel and the world.

The Initiative will function at many levels:

Leadership and Staff:
• Multi-level team-building and leadership development workshops.
• Articulating a compelling vision of the future and a cross-University holistic vision to create a supportive environment for collaboration.

• Create a culture of leadership for all students in all disciplines, through leadership programs in all faculties, and by inspiring leadership in all facets of students’ lives beyond their studies.

• Post-grad leadership forum, courses and workshops as well as collaboration with BGU graduates, leaders and managers from all industry fields.

Partners outside BGU:
• Beer-Sheva Municipality and local government in the Negev;
• Visiting leaders and exchange programs with other institutions;
• Soroka Medical Center, local industry and Advanced Technologies Park;
• Ministry for the Development of the Periphery, the Negev and the Galilee;
• Potential collaboration with the University of Manitoba.
