Ignatian Peacemaking Lecture: Molly Burhans

Monday, February 6th | 7 - 8 pm | AMU Ballrooms

Join us for the Ignatian Peacemaking Lecture, which will serve as the opening keynote of Marquette University's 2023 Mission Week celebration.

We are excited to have Molly Burhans, founder and executive director of GoodLands, present on how her engagement with Ignatian discernment led her to explore the intersections of environmentalism and data science, which led to her becoming a leading Catholic environmentalist, social entrepreneur, and cartographer.

Please also join us for a small reception with cookies and hot chocolate after the presentation.

Please register on Eventbrite.

This event is sponsored by the Marquette University Center for Peacemaking and the Office of Mission & Ministry.
