With the support of Maria Shriver, OLP brought the conversation series, Architects of Change Live to campus on November 30th for the inaugural launch at school featuring Head of School, Dr. Lauren Lek and Assistant Head of School, Jessica Hooper.
“We are honored to be the first school to partner with Ms. Shriver and her team for the launch of Architects of Change at School. These are the rich conversations about life and humanity that result in the powerful transformation of young women committed to making a difference in our world” Dr. Lek, OLP Head of School, said. “I am privileged to see how our young women at OLP are architects of change in their lives and communities each and every day.”
This statement is evidenced by the student-led production team at the helm of this grand accomplishment. The team of OLP students were responsible for all aspects of the event including ongoing dialogue with Maria Shriver and Shriver Media to ensure their vision was upheld.
Per Ms. Shriver, an Architect of Change is "someone who challenges what is, imagines what can be, and moves humanity forward." The premise of the live series is to bring together a conversation in an intimate setting because when people come together to listen and share, "minds open, hearts move and change happens." The OLP students are in the planning stage for the next conversation(s) to be hosted this spring.
Shriver’s previous Architects of Change Live guests include Shonda Rimes, TV producer and writer (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal); Patrick Kennedy, former Congressman from Rhode Island; Cindy Crawford, model and businesswoman; Terry Crews, actor and former NFL player.
