Fall Leadership Conference

Leadership Conference

Case Western Reserve University's annual Fall Leadership Conference will expose undergraduate and graduate students to the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to lead with purpose, so participants are inspired to positively impact our student organization and leadership community.

At the Fall Leadership Conference, participants will have the opportunity to meet and interact with other student leaders from across Northeast Ohio and together, they will connect with CWRU staff, faculty, alumni, community members & other presenters who are passionate about topics related to leadership and organizational management.

By attending the Fall Leadership Conference, it is our hope participants will:

  • Learn techniques to lead in a way that fosters a sense of belonging and pride on their campus.
  • Learn strategies to develop an authentic and impactful leadership identity.
  • Learn how to make tough decisions and lead in complex situations.

The theme of the 2020 conference is “Looking Beyond Zoom: Leading with Versatility & Resilience.”  

This year’s conference will have a different look. On Saturday, October 3, our keynote speaker, Tawan Perry, will speak to our student leaders about "Leading Through Crisis and Transition” via Zoom. Instead of doing breakout workshops that same day, we will be spreading those workshops out throughout the fall semester. Based on feedback from our student organizations, we have identified four topical areas of need that will serve as the foundation for our workshops:

  • Leadership & Advocacy
  • Inclusive Leadership
  • Building a Virtual Community
  • Navigating Politics as a Student Leader

Stay tuned for the dates and times of the breakout workshops!
