The Husky Leadership Initiative and Starbucks present:

The popular Leadership Fireside series is an ongoing opportunity for students to engage in meaningful dialogue with a diverse range of civic, educational, corporate and campus leaders in an informal setting. These leaders will share their personal journeys and perspectives on leadership and become momentary mentors for students attending the event. The diversity of guest speakers means that each Fireside will be unique. Students who want to reflect and engage in a dialogue about leadership and further develop the skills and knowledge to be effective leaders on and off campus will want to be sure to attend. 

The winter 2015 Leadership Firesides feature diverse perspectives from an immigrant/refugee rights activist, sexual violence warrior, lieutenant general, poet, geologist, computer scientist and theologian. The setting is intimate and informal and space is limited for each program. Registration is strongly encouraged so you don’t miss out! Register for winter quarter Firesides here. You may enter the registration system as many times as necessary.
