🏫 Students as Leaders, Leaders as Students (ft. Wellesley student leaders)
👯 Leadership & Collaboration (ft. Prof. Angela Bahns)
Leadership with a Lower-Case ‘L' (Sunday, October 3, 1:00 p.m. EDT)
Time: 1:00 - 1:45 p.m. EDT
Session: Leadership with a Lower-Case ‘L’
Description: Ever question what it means to be a leader? Yeah. Us too. For too long, leadership has suffered from a singular (read: restrictive, boring) definition, one that evokes a loud voice and a dominating presence, one that defines leadership as something exclusive to student body presidents and captains of the softball team. In this session, Professor of Chemistry Mala Radhakrishnan, who is passionate about catalyzing educational opportunities for all young people, and Carol Bate, Wellesley’s Senior Associate Dean of Students, will reframe leadership as a quality not so singularly defined—one that can be bold, as well as measured and collaborative, one that can manifest in actions both big and small, and one that any person, no matter their title or position, can leverage to affect change.
Students as Leaders (Sunday, October 3, 2:00 p.m. EDT)
Time: 2:00- 3:00 p.m. EDT
Session: Panel: Students as Leaders
Description: Today, more than ever, the burden (and privilege) of leadership has found students, with the world looking to younger generations for bold and effective action. In this panel with current Wellesley student leaders, we’ll discuss what it means to be a student leader today, the extent to which student leaders can change the world, and how to balance the hard work of student life with the powerful potential of leadership.
Leadership & Collaboration: A Conversation with Wellesley Faculty (Sunday, October 3, 3:30 p.m. EDT)
Time: 3:30-4:30 p.m. EDT
Session: Leadership & Collaboration: A Conversation with Wellesley Faculty
Description: At Wellesley (and beyond!) a key way students develop strength in leadership is by witnessing in action (and working alongside) leaders that inspire them. Join this conversation with Wellesley faculty to learn how working with your professors (through research, independent study, mentorship, and more!) will ground your perspective on leadership in collaboration and help you to cultivate the skills required for effective leadership.
