All MMC students and student leaders are encouraged to attend this year’s Leadership Summit on Sunday, March 3rd. We’ll be welcoming a host of professionals, activists, creators, and speakers to share their insight with our students based on the following tenets that we’ve identified for this conversation.
Authenticity as a prized quality of leaders
- Leaders are encouraged to be sincere and to operate with integrity; how does this play out when spaces are not inclusive of our full perspective?
- What are the impacts of proffering ‘authenticity’ without also acknowledging access and privilege or the lack thereof?
- How do we encourage an intersectional approach to bringing authenticity into leadership roles?
- The skill or a necessary evil for those who wish to be successful in systems not designed with them in mind
- The ubiquity of code-switching within identity communities (one interacts with friends in different ways than one would with parents and grandparents
- What are the factors to be considered as a leader with multiple intersecting identities?
- How do you maintain inclusive spaces to allow marginalized people/voices a seat at the table?
- Unpacking conflict when multiple identities are at play
