Warriors L.E.A.D. Summit

Want to further your professional development and have fun at the same time?

Look no further than the Warriors L.E.A.D. Summit. The Summit is an annual one-day retreat dedicated to students who want to become better leaders.

In the morning, you’ll listen to a keynote address from 12-time platinum award-winning musician Adam Met. He’ll share how he borrows practices from the music and entertainment industries and applies those practices to social activism efforts.

And in the afternoon, you’ll attend breakout sessions to explore a wide range of unique leadership topics. Past breakout sessions have covered fixed vs growth mindset, biases, and optimism. These mini workshops will be led by WSU students, faculty, and staff.

The best part: attending the Warriors L.E.A.D. Summit allows you to build your resumé and network with other student leaders on campus at no cost.

If you’re passionate about leadership and want to lead your own breakout session, we encourage you to present at this year’s Summit.
