Husky Leadership Initiative

March 30, 2017

Register now for the Husky Leadership Conference!

Based on our belief that one’s capacity to lead grows out of experience, practice and reflection, the Husky Leadership Conference gives you the opportunity to build and hone the leadership skills you need to make a difference in whatever context speaks to you. Take advantage of this opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes you need to be an effective change agent.

Here’s what’s included in your free conference registration: 

  • A keynote address from Holli Martinez, Sr. Director, Head of Diversity and Inclusion at T-Mobile
  • A chance to attend several breakout workshops on the topics of leadership in a variety of contexts:
    • Cultural Competency
    • Work and Employment
    • Community Engagement
    • Social Activism
  • A closing reception (hors d’oeuvres provided!) with 20+ recent UW alumni who will be available to answer questions on what leadership looks like beyond the UW

The conference will take place on Friday, April 21, from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. in Mary Gates Hall.

REGISTER NOW! Stay tuned on the conference website for session descriptions and more.
