Leadership Workshop Series
Developed in the Spring of 2017, the Leadership Workshop Series is a series offered to all internship students. We created this series to develop our students into effective leaders, and more marketable candidates. After analyzing Employer’s Feedback, we took the constructive comments and created topics to address the areas of improvement. Industry partners facilitate a 45 minute workshop on various topics. So far, the series has been a phenomenal success! We have mentored over 10,000 students with the collective efforts of our industry partners!
Each Leadership Workshop starts with a brief introduction of your career path, followed by your presentation on a leadership topic, ending in Q&A with the students. The workshops are mandatory for all internship students (they must attend 2 workshops per semester), as well as open to all current students and alumni.
Fall 2021 Leadership Workshop Series
If interested in participating in a Leadership Workshop, please email Internship Program Director, Jessica Wickey, at Jessica.email@example.com.
**Workshops are held in the Darden Auditorium, Room 101, on the Rosen College campus. The auditorium is equipped with presentation technology**
