Foundations of Effective Leadership

3:30 - 4:30 p.m. Julis Romo Rabinowitz Building, Bowl A17

Princeton graduates serve in countless leadership positions around the world from entrepreneurs to teachers, directors to parents. Understanding the traits and behaviors that make leaders effective is critical for any organization, and applies to students on campus and alumni in the world at large. Join us for a panel that brings together experts on leadership and Outdoor Action alumni from academics, business, government, the non-profit sector and current OA student leaders to explore what makes leaders effective and how to enhance your own leadership. For those of you who won’t be around on Friday, we are broadcasting live on a Zoom Webinar.
