Leadership*- Day 3

9 Jan

Wednesday was our final day together in the environmental leadership workshop. We were happy to sit back and hear from seven Five College alumnae who are leaders of one kind or another in the environmental field, about their career paths, about the kind of work they do, and about what keeps them coming back for more day after day, despite (or because of) the challenges they face in doing their work. I think we all left inspired and reassured, with new ideas to consider.




The day wrapped up with the promised lecture by someone many consider an environmental hero: Denis Hayes.  It was exciting to see the Neilson Browsing Room fill up with students, faculty, staff, and members of our larger local community, eager to hear from someone who has accomplished so much and who continues to provide inspiration. 

It was a great three days, and students are already asking about whether we will offer a similar workshop next year! We’ll keep you posted…
