Building Inclusive Community: Stronger Together

The Graduate Student Leadership Summit is an intense, one day leadership development event, open to all graduate, graduate professional students, and post-docs.

A great leader attracts great people and understands how to hold them together towards building a world as it should be. Human beings do not exist in isolation. Ultimately leadership is a relational process that requires the collective talent of a unified community. Leading your life purposefully requires self-awareness, social and emotional intelligence, the ability to lead in a variety of contexts (professional, personal, academic, industry, board meetings, etc.) and the ability to apply functional skills to change management.

At this year's Graduate Student Leadership Summit, you will learn from proven leaders who have demonstrated and honed these skills in their personal and professional lives. Our speakers will talk about how they have built teams and communities, managed change, both internally (evolving belief system, courage), and externally (managing diverse people, designing innovative systems, etc.). Leaders who wish to establish a highly engaging and effective community need many skills including self-awareness, social and emotional intelligence, the ability to communicate effectively, and the ability develop an inclusive environment.

Registration for this workshop is required.There is a $10 fee required to participate. Instructions on how to pay this fee will be included on the confirmation email that you receive upon registration.
