Students Explore Diversity and Leadership as Part of the Wagner Leadership Academy Workshop Series
Earlier this month, the NYU Wagner Leadership Academy (WLA) held its first of four sessions in the Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue. This initial workshop, led by Jamie L. O’Regan, Surabhi Lal, and Corey Blay, explored the issues of diversity both globally and domestically, as well as discussed the role of the Wagner community and our responsibility to collectively shape it.
The WLA is a collaboration between NYU Wagner's Student Activities, Career Services, and the NYU Leadership Initiative. This four-part workshop series is rooted in competency-based learning and is geared towards current Wagner students. Each workshop will focus on a different aspect of leadership development through interactive exercises, honest feedback, and meaningful dialogue. Built on the notion that leadership is a collaborative process and that we can help one another further our professional development, this is an important and exciting series that we encourage all students to attend.
As part of the first session on diversity, an art installation entitled "Hopes for Our Community" was given footing to showcase the ideas of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The exhibit, which we encourage everyone to continue adding to, will remain on display in the cafe area on the second floor of the Puck Building through November.
The next workshop series will focus on Authentic Leadership and take place on Thursday, December 4, 2014 from 5:00pm - 6:30pm in the Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue. Don’t miss this opportunity. RSVP at http://wagner.nyu.edu/events
