Leadership in Action Student Expo: May 3 - 13, 2021
The annual Leadership in Action Student Expo will showcase and celebrate student work that has impacted a community, exemplifies leadership traits or shows a connection to something greater than oneself.
The inaugural expo will be held in a virtual format, kicking off the week of May 3, 2021. Each day, we’ll share student-produced videos showcasing projects and the processes taken to realize their ideas. Projects may include the culmination of a classroom activity or an independent idea that came to fruition outside of the classroom. The student videos will illustrate core values of the Leadership in Action Program:Compassion
- Empathy in ActionCourage
- Resilient in the face of ChangeCollaboration
- Teamwork in Action; Diversity of thought in Action Responsibility
- Ethical Decision Making in ActionIngenuity
- Intellectual Curiosity in Action
Additionally, please join us on Thursday, May 13, from 6-7 pm, for a moderated student panel webinar to hear from a selection of students about their work. Students will share insights into their process and provide advice for their fellow students to embark on impact-oriented projects.
We realize that sometimes students need additional assistance to help take their idea to the next level. As part of the Leadership in Action Student Expo, Bryn Mawr will grant five funding awards to students who demonstrate a need for project resources. Examples of funding uses include purchasing needed supplies, buying a software license, applying for a provisional patent, amongst others. We will announce funding award recipients during the Student Panel discussion event on May 13.
