Employers are looking to hire people with tangible and transferable leadership experience. The Leadership Academy professional development series will help you understand and develop who you are as a leader, show you different leadership perspectives, and give you exposure to leadership in practice. These regular workshops help participants engage with advanced leadership concepts through discussions with leaders on and off campus. These workshops will be a deep dive into social change and action-oriented leadership with sessions utilizing the Social Change Model of Leadership as a framework: Consciousness of Self, Congruence, Commitment, Collaboration, Common Purpose, Controversy with Civility, and Citizenship. Each of session facilitators will take their own unique spin on skills/topics related to leadership and their week's "C".
