Emerging Leaders Conference

The Emerging Leaders Conference is a weekend opportunity for freshmen and sophomore leaders that happens annually. It is a great opportunity to build a foundation of leadership development from the very beginning of your MIT career. 

The Emerging Leaders Conference focuses in on the personal context of leadership with an interactive and experiential agenda. Participants are challenged to think beyond positional leadership and are given the opportunity to explore what leadership means to them, to assess their personal behavioral style, and to tackle such topics as personal values, teamwork, competition, collaboration, and communication. Participants leave with a clearer understanding of how they define leadership and why, and are given the tools necessary to bring their new knowledge back to their organizations, dorms, living groups, and teams. Participants also interact with new student leaders from across campus, developing relationships and a network that stretches across MIT. First come, first serve. Spots available for the first thirty students to register; other applicants will be added to a waiting list. 

Dress for the weekend is casual; come as you are!
