Leadership and Public Service: A Conversation with The Honorable Mitt Romney

The Baker Institute hosted the Honorable Mitt Romney for an armchair conversation with director Ambassador Edward P. Djerejian on leadership, public service and the responsibilities that come with both. Romney was the 2012 Republican nominee for president, and was a candidate for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination. He served as governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007, and is currently running for a U.S. Senate seat in Utah.

Prior to his time as governor, he led the 2002 Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the Winter Olympics. Romney was also the co-founder of Bain Capital, a leading investment company, and the turnaround CEO of Bain & Company, an international management consulting firm.

This event was part of the 25th anniversary commemorative programs featuring the centers and research of Rice University’s Baker Institute.
