The Leadership Firesides series 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, perspectives on leadership and lessons they have learned about working with and influencing others towards positive change.  This course will offer students an opportunity to take a deep dive into the Firesides series and apply these lessons to their own lives.  Registered students will attend the weekly Leadership Firesides, participate in an introductory session (Week 1) and a closing session (Week 10) and submit weekly written reflections.

The 2018 Leadership Firesides is sponsored by the Husky Leadership Initiative and the Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity.
