The 2012 NEW Leadership Nevada Training Institute for young women has kicked off! The two University of Nevada, Reno delegates this year are me, Farah Rashdan, and Claudia Agbor-Bessem. We both happen to be Center students, so we will be keeping you updated on our experiences at this training. We are happy to have been selected for the program, and would like to give a big thank you to the Center for encouraging us to apply!
Right now we’re in Las Vegas for the five day residential component of the program. We are spending all our time at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus taking part in workshops, thought-provoking discussions and meeting accomplished women from fields such as education, law and politics.
The night of our arrival was very welcoming. We met some wonderful role models who are excited about helping young women became better leaders not only in society, but in our own lives. Some of these professionals even took time away from their busy jobs in Washington D.C. to be here in Las Vegas for us beginners. It was such a great welcome to this program!
Will fill you in about more of the program another day…
