Lead your flamingos in the right direction

March 10, 2014

Leadership logoStudent leaders of today and tomorrow will have opportunities to gain important skills and insights at an upcoming series of campus events.

UW-Whitewater’s Explore Leadership series kicks off on Wednesday, March 12.

“Explore Leadership is a series of programs dedicated to fostering and inspiring current and potential student leaders to grow critical leadership skills and engage the campus in a positive and encouraging manner,” said Johanna Klay, a student program organizer.

“Why a purple flamingo?” is the theme of the series. The events aim to help students learn the secret of the flamingo and get their own “flock” to take flight.

We want the students who attend our events to be able to take what they learn during our programs, bring it back to their organizations, and help lead their organization to better practices and success,” Klay said.

Corey Ciocchetti, an assistant professor of business ethics and legal studies at the University of Denver, will lead off the series. He will talk about authentic success and living an ethical life at 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 12, in the University Center Ballroom.

A reception introducing a leadership essay exhibit will take place at 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 12, in the Old Main Lane (second floor) in the University Center. The exhibit runs through Friday, March 21.

 The essays are just a great way to showcase the fantastic student leaders on campus and highlight some of the ways they have impacted and been affected by UW-Whitewater in terms of how they lead,” Klay said.

The leadership series also includes two brown bag lunch discussions, a leadership seminar and a panel.

UW-Whitewater’s Career and Leadership Development office is sponsoring the series.
