Architects of Change Live featuring Maria Shriver
March 22, 2018 | The Academy of Our Lady of Peace
The Academy of Our Lady of Peace, the oldest high school in San Diego and the only all girls’ school in the county, is hosting The New York Times best-selling author and former First Lady of California, Maria Shriver, for an exclusive Architects of Change Live speaking engagement on campus. The event begins at 1pm, and attendees will have the opportunity to engage in the intimate conversation with the award-winning journalist and producer while she shares her thoughts on everything from her new book I’ve Been Thinking…Reflections, Prayers and Meditations for a Meaningful Life to her Architects of Change Live Conversation series and more.
“According to Maria Shriver, an Architect of Change is someone ‘who challenges what is, imagines what can be and moves humanity forward.’ We are humbled that such a visionary leader for California and our nation is serving as a connector to this generation of changemakers,” says Dr. Lauren Lek, Head of School at Academy of Our Lady of Peace. “She’s a model of professionalism, faith, and motherhood. Moving humanity forward is not just a slogan for Maria, it is her identity.”
The premise of the 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 school has been in partnership with Shriver Media since November 2016, as the first school to bring the Architects of Change program to the scholastic level. Since that time, the school has hosted bi-yearly Live Conversations on campus, as well as monthly features in their digital forums of named Architects of Change whose story and forward motion provides compelling inspiration to others. The special event is open to the public. Tickets are $30 each and the first 200 tickets sold will include a copy of Shriver’s new book “I’ve Been Thinking…” aolp.org/mariashriver
