Dear friends of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles,

In partnership with Farmers & Merchants Bank, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles is excited to host the first Ethical Leadership Lunch. The Ethical Leadership Lunch will invite leaders working in our region to discuss professional ethics and how faith influences and inspires their leadership style.

We're hosting the inaugural event Friday, May 17, 2024, at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angeles. We hope to provide an immersive experience combining meaningful networking and engaging discussions. After networking and lunch, the event will conclude with a panel discussion recognizing faith's role in the decision-making of some of our community's most prominent leaders. This year's panel includes Bob Graziano, Vice Chairman at J.P. Morgan Private Bank, Rick Caruso of Caruso, and Maria Salinas, President & CEO of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. We are proud that a Catholic Education influenced each of this year's panelists.

We know that Catholic schools educate and develop the whole child, engaging them mentally, socially, physically, and spiritually, all while providing the comprehensive knowledge and skills needed to help students fulfill their aspirations for a lifetime of success. All proceeds will benefit our Catholic schools, supporting the Department of Catholic Schools (DCS) and the Catholic Education Foundation (CEF).

Your partnership in this event will help us give the gift of Catholic Schools and help us educate the next generation of ethical leaders. We invite you and your company to partner and participate by sponsoring and attending the event.
