Leadership Firesides

Storytelling and conversation with inspiring leaders

Leadership Firesides session

Husky Leadership Initiative Leadership Firesides offer ongoing opportunities for students to engage in meaningful dialogue with a diverse range of civic, corporate and campus leaders in an informal setting. These leaders share their personal journeys and perspectives on leadership and become momentary mentors for students attending the event. The Firesides are a way for students to learn more about and reflect on leadership and build their leadership competence and confidence.

Students:  Sign up to take the 1-credit Leadership Firesides course in Winter 2020! Registered students will attend the weekly Firesides sessions, participate in an introductory session (Week 1) and a closing session (Week 10) and submit weekly written reflections.  Course details:
