NYU Leadership Week 2018

Building Networks. Mobilizing Communities.

October 22 – 25, 2018

Save the Date! Starting October 22 – 25th, the NYU Leadership Initiative will be offering university-wide events and workshops to explore how to identify, build, and activate a network of developmental relationships. The entire NYU community is invited to engage in interactive workshops and hear from featured guest speakers. Throughout the week, students will examine common networking misconceptions, understand different relationships, and learn how to gain the support needed to advocate for themselves and for others.

Get ready to hear from all-star speakers, grab giveaways, and take your leadership to the next level. See the full schedule and register at bit.ly/LeadershipWeek2018!

And help make the week a success by signing up for a volunteer shift on our website. Volunteers play a critical role in fostering inclusive leadership at NYU, have the opportunity to meet new peers, and take home a swag bag.
