Leadership Week

October 4th-7th, we held the 2nd Annual Leadership Week here on campus. During this week we held a mixture of virtual and in-person events centered around our how-to book theme, “How to lead.” During the week, we had programs that covered the topics of self-care, inclusive leadership, and community & team building. Leadership week concluded with a keynote professional panel discussion on October 7th,  titled “ Leadership Through Different Lenses.” This panel included three Greensboro community leaders from diverse backgrounds talking about what leadership looks like in their eyes.
