Hans Vestberg joined Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States and Founder and Board Chair of the Clinton Foundation, for the final installment of our commencement series.

Hans urged graduates to stay positive during these difficult times. He stressed the importance of leadership and human connection. Hans shared how he found his path and career success by maintaining a natural curiosity and learning new things, including new languages, through different roles.

President Clinton urged graduates to examine their lives and think about how they want to affect change in the world. He reminded us all that the long arc of history only bends towards justice if people work to make it happen.

You can watch earlier commencement addresses by Hugh Evans, Kevin Love, William Lauder and Katie Sowers on the Verizon LinkedIn page.
