Opening remarks at the 2019 Leadership Summit

2023 Leadership Summit: Leadership Looks Like YOU

Saturday, February 18, 2023 | 10:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m. | EMU Crater Lake Rooms

The UO Leadership Summit is designed to help you unleash your natural potential as a leader. Come together with your peers in a collaborative space for connection and exploration. This event is an opportunity to receive formal leadership training, build transferrable skills, and make an impact in your community.

By the end of the day, participants will have reflected on their leadership strengths and learned about the most important elements of effective leadership, as well as tangible strategies for how to apply them.

This year’s Leadership Summit will be structured differently than previous years, and we have designed the curriculum to maximize learning, networking, and community building. Our goal is to provide participants with formal leadership training while also ensuring the day is fun and engaging. Participants will spend the day in the Crater Lake Rooms working with their small table groups, including discussions, reflections, and interactive activities—so come prepared to engage with your fellow Ducks! Due to the interactive nature of the event, we will provide adequate breaks to recharge and ensure participant needs are being met.

Throughout the day we will be providing participants with food, coffee, and tea. For more information about the food, please read below. At the end of the summit, participants will be provided with a small gift bag, and there will be a prize drawing where one participant will win a $125 Duck Store gift card. 

Register for the 2023 Leadership Summit

Registration will close on February 17, or once the event’s capacity is reached.
