One of the nation’s longest serving Senate Republican leaders, Bob Dole was known for his ability to work across the aisle and foster practical bipartisanship. He has been a life-long advocate for the disabled and was a key figure in the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. In January 2018, Dole received the nation’s highest civilian award — the Congressional Gold Medal — for his contributions as a soldier, legislator, and statesman.
Elizabeth Dole served in both the Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush presidential administrations, as well as in the United States Senate. In addition to her many accomplishments, Dole was the first woman in our nation to serve as secretary of transportation and the first woman to win North Carolina’s Senate seat.
“The Dole Leadership Series will showcase great ideas and inspired leadership from Corporate executives, community activists, and public officials said BPC President Jason Grumet. “With these events, we seek to understand and celebrate the skills and circumstances that define great leaders like Bob and Elizabeth Dole.”
