On Saturday, Oct. 5 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Case Western Reserve University will be holding the What’s Your Superpower: Fall Leadership Conference in Nord Hall and Sears Building for both undergraduate and graduate students.

The conference is sponsored by the University Program Board (UPB), Undergraduate Student Government (USG), the Panhellenic and Interfraternity Congress, Class Officer Collective (COC), Residence Hall Association (RHA), Graduate Student Senate and Student Activities and Leadership.

Students will be able to chose three breakout sessions from a list of 30 that will all promote conversation about organizational management.

“I really like that they divided up into different sessions and you can pick and choose. It just makes it more individualized instead of just a general leadership conference. Because there are so many different qualities and skills needed to be a good leader, and I know for myself, there are some areas where I’m stronger and others where I need work, so this will be helpful for that,” said COC President of Class of 2016, Rachel Sosnowchik.

The objective is to expose leaders and aspiring leaders to knowledge, skills and resources necessary to lead. In addition, there will be organizational focused sessions for student leaders to continue to improve their communication and skills.

The networking lunch at the conference is also intended to be an opportunity for students to meet and interact with other student leaders, CWRU staff, alumni, community members and other passionate presenters.

“I had a great experience at Fall Leadership Conference last year, and I learned a lot about my own leadership style,” noted USG’s Vice President of Academic Affairs, Xiaoyu Li. “It was wonderful seeing so many student leaders at CWRU come together as a community.”
