Saturday, Nov. 18
3-4:30PM ET

virtual event; open to all mentees and mentors | required for Lead 360, Career 360, and College 360 participants

Join us for conversation and Q&A with Alex Budak, author of Becoming a Changemaker, where we will discuss the traits the most successful changemakers have in common. We will review concepts like Micro-leadership to show how each of us can lead from where we are, and principles like “Confidence without Attitude,” “Question the Status Quo,” and “Beyond Yourself” to provide a framework for stepping into our own unique changemaker potential.

These insights will help in developing the mindsets and leadership skills needed to navigate, shape, and lead change and to make a positive impact in our lives, career, and communities.
