Husky Leadership Initiative Home Page

Registration is open now for our Winter 2017 Leadership Firesides! We hope that you can join us for these inspiring events.

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. The 2017 Firesides theme is “Be the Change”, and speakers will share stories of how they themselves have been a part of change.
