Leadership Firesides: Storytelling and conversation with inspiring leaders, Nov. 4th & 12th

The Husky Leadership Initiative and Starbucks present:
2014-2015 Leadership Firesides

The popular Leadership Fireside series is an ongoing opportunity for students to engage in meaningful dialogue with a diverse range of civic, educational, corporate and campus leaders in an informal setting. These leaders will share their personal journeys and perspectives on leadership and become momentary mentors for students attending the event. The diversity of guest speakers means that each Fireside will be unique. These events are a way for students to learn more about and reflect on leadership and build their leadership skills. Students who want to engage in a dialogue about leadership and further develop the skills and knowledge to be effective leaders on and off campus will want to be sure to attend.

The setting is intimate and informal and space is limited for each program. Registration is strongly encouraged so you don’t miss out! Register for autumn quarter Firesides here. You may enter the registration system as many times as necessary.

Starbucks is dedicated to the development of student leaders and proud to be a presenting sponsor of the Leadership Firesides.
