The Steward Speakers Series, presented by IUPUI, influences growth in the community by presenting opportunities to engage with leaders and luminaries.

Having left the basketball court for the boardroom, Earvin “Magic” Johnson has successfully parlayed his skills and tenacity from the court into the business world as Chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises (MJE). MJE provides high-quality products and services that focus primarily on ethnically diverse and under-served urban communities. With his continued love of basketball, Johnson is utilizing those same skills and bringing his winning spirit in his recent role as the President of Basketball Operations for the Los Angeles Lakers, working closely with ownership throughout all areas of the franchise.

Still a commanding presence in popular culture, Johnson made history in 2012 when he became co-owner of MLB’s Los Angeles Dodgers. He also co-owns the Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA and Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Football Club. He continues to expand his influence through his many businesses that include: EquiTrust Life Insurance Company, ASPiRE, an African-American television network and SodexoMAGIC, a food service and facilities management company.
