Join On Leadership for a special event at the Smithsonian about the Chilean mine rescue

Chilean miners attend the Smithsonian’s exhibit Against All Odds: Rescue at the Chilean Mine.
Live in the Washington area and interested in all things leadership? On Thursday, February 23, you can join On Leadership at the National Museum of Natural History for a special event exploring America’s role in the Chilean mine rescue.

The panel discussion is the second in a series of leadership seminars being held in conjunction with the Smithsonian’s special exhibit Against All Odds: Rescue at the Chilean Mine . Michael Useem, director of the Wharton School’s Leadership Center at the University of Pennsylvania and longtime contributor to the Washington Post’s On Leadership section, will moderate the discussion. He will be joined on the panel by Ed Breiner of Schramm and Brandon W. Fisher and Richard Soppe of Center Rock — the two companies that created the drilling system that led to the rescue of 33 miners. The panel will also feature Dr. Michael Duncan of NASA, which helped design the rescue capsule and provided support during the operation, and a representative from the Embassy of Chile.

The panel discussion will take place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Baird Auditorium, at the National Museum of History. Admission is free, though registration is required.

The event is jointly presented by the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and the Embassy of Chile, in collaboration with On Leadership , the Wharton Leadership Center and Knowledge@Wharton.
