2016 Leadership Mason Conference – October 22nd

2016 Leadership Mason Conference


This year’s Leadership Mason Conference will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2016. The conference is a one-day program focusing on leadership skill development through large group and small workshop formats. Students enhance the leadership skills they already have while gaining new skills that will benefit both now and in the future. This year’s theme is Leading Social Change Through Student Activism. This conference is for ALL students who are interested in how they can help make positive change in their own lives and the lives of others. You do NOT need to be a student activist to attend.

This year’s conference will focus on leading social change through student activism. Students will have an opportunity to engage with one another in a thought-provoking, interactive learning environment that will challenge students to think critically around various aspects of the social change model as it connects directly to student activism and leadership. Students will have a chance to select from a variety of breakout sessions that will focus on areas of social justice, intersectionality of identities, social movements,understanding of the dynamics of power, privilege and oppression, ethical leadership, student advocacy, as well as systematic structures and policies that exist that impact student resiliency and well-being.

The conference will take place on Saturday, October 22nd in The Hub, Ballroom at George Mason University.

Students will be able to enhance leadership skills they already have, while gaining new skills that will be of benefit both now and in the future. Participation in the conference will give students the chance to interact, engage, and connect with other student leaders, as well as faculty and staff. Leadership Mason will create a space where students will develop an awareness of leadership qualities they would like to develop and foster within themselves and others. The conference is designed for students at all levels of experience – we believe everyone has the potential to be a leader!
