Duquesne Breakfast Workshop to Examine Diversity and Leadership

The interdependence of diversity and leadership will be explored at the upcoming installment of the Duquesne University Leadership Breakfast Series on Tuesday, Dec. 10. 

This event, titled Valuing Differences, Celebrating Diversity: To Invoke Excellence in Leadership, will be held in the Power Center Ballroom West, 8-10 a.m., with breakfast at 7:30 a.m. It is the last of 10 events in the 2013 Leadership Breakfast series, sponsored by the School of Leadership and Professional Advancement (SLPA).

It features two presenters from Slippery Rock University: Holly McCoy, J.D., assistant vice president for diversity and equal opportunity, and Dr. Jessamine M. Montero Michaels, special assistant to the president and senior officer for diversity and inclusion. Their program will delve into fundamental concepts related to diversity and inclusion, and through interactive exercises, guide participants in examining the similarities, differences and stereotyping of various groups of people.

The SLPA Leadership Breakfast Series is designed to inspire participants and help them cultivate the qualities needed for leadership success regardless of their professional roles. To that end, the events in the series offer networking opportunities as well as useful information and skills development.
