What is Leadership? A Fireside Chat with Schwarzman Scholars

April 6th at 4 PM, virtual session.

What does it take to be a leader in the 21st century? Who are leaders that you admire and wish to emulate? The word leadership doesn’t always mean the same thing across languages, cultures, and communities. Regardless, we might all agree that leadership is a multidimensional set of actions and behaviors. How might you map your experiences onto your concept of leadership in this fast paced, ever changing world? In this discussion, we will explore how to build your own leadership narrative and showcase your skills to competitive fellowships like Schwarzman Scholars.
