About the Conference
Each year, the RI Conference on Values-Based Leadership offers student leaders and leadership development professionals a valuable opportunity to come together and explore the choices and challenges inherent to effective values-based leadership.
Through interactive workshops and presentations, participants will examine their own values, attitudes and beliefs, while benefitting from varying perspectives, peer support, and the guidance of leaders and ethical thinkers from the local business community. Conference participants will contemplate what type of person and leader they wish to be, helping them to develop the conviction to live out those values in their leadership with purpose and integrity. Through the establishment of this supportive and engaging collegiate network, we hope to strengthen the effectiveness and pool of student leaders in Rhode Island.
Administrators, faculty and staff attending the conference with their students will also have the opportunity to network and collaborate with colleagues around leadership topics during the conference day.
“This was a great conference and this actually made me solidify my career goals and what’s limiting me from accomplishing these career goals.”
“This was a very inspiring experience and makes me want me to be a better leader to my peers.”
“I’ve easily been to over 50 leadership conferences between being a DECA national Officer and a highly involved JWU student and I can say without a doubt this is one of my favorites! Thank you Providence College for always providing an exceptional conference!”
