This month, members of the Ted Bauer Leadership Certificate Program (TBLCP) participate in their 3rd Annual Alumni Panel and Networking Mixer.
TBLCP is a year-long leadership development program focused on developing the leadership and professional skills of participants. Students in the program spend a whole year attending workshops on topics such as public speaking, conflict management, and emotional intelligence. In addition to workshops, students attend monthly professional events, engage in community service, and complete a spring capstone project with their peers. This program has had over 500 participants since it was started.
Also of note, is that this event is planned entirely by the four TBLCP Peer Advisors. The TBLCP Peer Advisors are a group of four student leaders who have already completed the certificate program. They serve as leaders and mentors for current program participants. One of their responsibilities includes leading and planning the alumni panel and mixer each year.
This event is held exclusively for members of TBLCP and alumni of the program. Current members of the program were given a chance to network with graduated students who had completed the program as well as current UH students who had completed the program. After the networking, a panel consisting of four graduated TBLCP alumni took place. The panelists included Emma Armer (BBA ’17), Christopher Gervasio (MSACCY ’18), Daniel Ortiz (BBA ’17), and Lauren Christensen (BBA ’18). These alumni shared the many ways their experiences in TBLCP have influenced their professional careers.
