9th Annual Leadership Conference

Mentorship Matters: Putting the Pieces Together

The Student Leadership Conference is an opportunity for students to grow, learn, and develop as leaders. They will listen to speakers, participate in workshops, and network with professionals in fields relevant to their courses of study.  There will be three sessions and each will consist of multiple presentations around the conference theme and session. This conference is free and open to all students, faculty and staff members on both the Pace New York City and Pleasantville campus. Students from other institutions will be charged a fee of $25.00. Presenting at the Leadership Conference will allow you to connect with students, highlight your creativity and share your expertise. For students interested in presenting, it will give you an opportunity to find a mentor or enhance your existing relationship. As a courtesy to presenters, the conference fee will be waived.

This year’s session theme’s: Networking, Self-Discovery: Knowing, Identifying and Developing Your Skills, and Skills and Passions

The 9th Annual Leadership Conference is composed of a vibrant keynote address, three different workshops to choose from, breakfast and lunch, a closing soft skills interactive networking session, and dessert.
