Student Leadership Summit

Student Leadership Summit

Are you keen to hear from inspiring speakers, tackle modern leadership challenges, and enhance your ability to lead during times of uncertainty? The annual Student Leadership Summit is all about helping you navigate change as a leader in a complex world.

This year's Summit will be held from 5.30–8.30pm on Tuesday 24 August.

The Summit is an important opportunity to connect with hundreds of other like-minded peers in the Monash student leadership community. You'll have the opportunity to:

  • hear from inspiring speakers about overcoming adversity, adapting to change, and leading yourself and others during times of uncertainty
  • access interactive workshops designed to help you develop your leadership strengths, adaptability and investigate important topics, such as personal wellbeing and climate change.

Presented online in September, the 2020 Student Leadership Summit featured two panel events: Positive and Productive Wellbeing and Creating a Climate for Change.

The two keynote speakers were Dr Nathan Eva, Senior Lecturer in the Department of Management at Monash Business School (Positive and Productive Wellbeing), and Associate Professor Djuke Veldhuis, Director of Monash University's Bachelors of Science Advanced – Global Challenges course (Creating a Climate for Change). Guest panellists David Finnigan, Simone Pianko, Tarang Chawla and Ashley Paxton also discussed leadership and its challenges during times of uncertainty. Students were then able to unpack these ideas in tailored yLab workshops specific to each event theme.

Details on the next summit, and how you can get involved, will be released in 2021.
