Everyone Can Be a Leader: Exploring Nontraditional Community Leadership

  • by

The April 15th event is part of Oregon Humanities’ statewide Conversation Project. RSVP HERE

 

Popular understandings of leadership tell us that leaders look a certain way: they are in charge. They possess outward strength. They are extroverted and act pragmatically rather than emotionally. Perhaps most important, leaders are people in positions of authority and power. Is there an alternative type of leadership? When are we leaders in our communities? How can our unique senses of self contribute to our roles as leaders?  

This is the focus of “Everyone Can Be a Leader: Exploring Nontraditional Community Leadership,” a free conversation with Pepe Moscoso on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 7PM at Dicks Primal Burger Community Room 4905 SE Woodstock Blvd. This program is hosted by SE Uplift and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
