Workshop description: “Who Am I To Lead?” This question, the title of Torin’s book is meant to inspire belief, not doubt.

In this interactive workshop, you will have a safe space to:
– Explore your experiences here on campus as men of color, sharing stories and building kinship among fellow student leaders
– Become aware of real potential challenges you may face because of your identity, and ways to overcome them
– Discover how to thrive, and lead while being your most authentic self in school, at work and in life

Saturday, 4/27 from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
Workshop goals: (a) to address the issues which men of color face during their pursuit of leadership roles and in the process of leading and: (b) to establish formal mentoring relationships with alumni to improve leadership self-efficacy.
All participants will receive a copy of the book called “Who Am I to Lead?” and those who complete the full workshop requirements will be paired with a mentor (an alum or possibly a parent) for a year-long mentoring relationship focused on leadership development.
SPRING 2018 - Women Leading Up
Priority registration for non-senior women.
Facilitator: Natalie Loeb, M.S., Founder of Loeb Leadership Development Group. Read About Our Facilitator
Workshop description: This workshop features a professional leadership consultant, who will help participants reflect on issues that women can face in their pursuit of leading change.
Today’s women leaders all started somewhere. The leaders we become evolve. If we are paying attention, hints of who we can be are there as we move throughout the undergraduate years. In this workshop, Natalie will share her story and observations highlighting how young female leaders evolve into strong, competent, credible female leaders when in the pinnacle of their careers. Using data and stories from high achieving women Natalie coached in her career; along with her own story, Natalie will walk you through four key stages of a leader’s career and questions to consider along the way. Participants will explore:
– The critical role of “questioning” in success
– What it means to “yield” and how to do it effectively
– How to prepare to “own it” as you journey towards a personal definition of success.
