Husky Leadership Initiative


You're invited to the third annual Husky Leadership Initiative kick-off event:

U Lead We Lead: Cultivating Leadership

October 29, 6-8 p.m.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

UW HUB Ballroom

Register here today!

How do you plant, grow, and deepen your leadership talents?
How do you create the change you wish to see?

At U Lead We Lead, students and members of the University community will dig into stories from local leaders about cultivating leadership in yourself and in others.

Four local luminaries each share their story and perspective on leadership and call you to action. Have you ever wanted to talk about a TED talk with people who've seen the same speaker? At U Lead We Lead, you get to listen to interesting talks by smart people and then talk about what you heard in small groups. Shine a light on teamwork, respect, responsibility, and civic engagement through dynamic reflection and rich conversation.

Think you'll be hungry? Don't worry; dinner will be provided.

As the Husky Leadership Initiative kick-off event for the year, U Lead We Lead: Cultivating Leadership helps your leadership skills take root. Nurture them by staying involved in Husky Leadership Initiative programs throughout the year. Learn what's going on through Facebook, Twitter, or our website.

Teach For America is developing a movement of leaders who will help drive change at every level of our education system toward the goal of closing the opportunity gap in America.  These leaders start their paths as corps members who teach for two years in urban and rural high-need communities and help students make the academic progress that expands their opportunities.  Deeply affected by their teaching experience, our alumni continue to advocate for students and build lasting change in many different roles and fields.
