  CUNY Students Find Their Inner Heroes

The CUNY Leadership Academy held its annual Emerging Leader’s Conference at the City College of New York. The all day event was held February 19, 2010 and united leaders from all over CUNY. Dr. Joe-Joe McManus, Executive Director of the CUNY Leadership Academy, gave the opening remarks and encouraged students to embrace the theme of the conference “Find Your Inner Hero. Be a Super Leader.” The keynote address was delivered by Ms. Kirstin Skarie, Founder and President of the consulting firm Teamworks. During her talk Ms. Skarie shared with the audience her 22 years of experiences in leadership development as both an educator and entrepreneur.

The conference continued with a series of breakout sessions, which helped students to discover their personal leadership style and allowed them to draw comparisons to other aspects of leadership. The students were enthusiastic about these group activities and continuously cheered while discovering their inner heroes. Among the facilitators were the Dr. Christopher Rosa, CUNY Assistant Dean of Student Affairs, and Ms. Charmaine Worthy, Director of Student Activities.

The day concluded with a student networking session where students reflected about what they had learned during the day and shared their various leadership activities on their home campus. Representatives from the CUNY/Institute for Virtual Enterprise were also there to encourage students to be involved in the various leadership roundtables this spring semester.
