The Society News
Letter from the President
Dear Society Member,
An epic film series spanning four decades, Star Wars is a rare piece of pop culture that bridges the generational gap.
In the Star Wars universe, the Jedi are a noble order of protectors most commonly noted for their ability to tap into the power of the Force. For over a thousand generations, they served as guardians of peace and justice in the Galactic Republic.
With universal themes of trust, teamwork, kindness and perseverance, the Star Wars franchise continues to captivate and connect audiences. The next time you are working within a diverse group of individuals and looking to bridge the gap, think back to this and identify the themes that resonate and link your group together.
