BIPOC Leadership Workshop: The Influence of Culture in the Workplace

Monday, February 7 at 3:00pm to 4:30pm

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Multicultural Center, room 109
1395 University Street, Eugene, OR 97403

“Leadership” is considered one of the core career readiness competencies for college students that lead to success in the workplace and lifelong career management. The truth of the matter is that leadership, as defined in the U.S., is not built for the success and retention of BIPOC individuals. BIPOC communities and cultures value collective thoughts and collaboration over individualism; connection, growth and community over professionalism; excellence over perfectionism; and storytelling and verbal communication over the written word. It’s time to change the narrative and bring BIPOC leadership into the spotlight!

In this interactive workshop facilitated by BIPOC Student Leaders from Holden Center for Leadership and Community Engagement, we invite you to reflect on leadership, culture, and identity as we examine the influence of culture in the workplace. UO Alumni Leo Pichette Director Nike University Relations and enrolled member of Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and Career Lead for Native American Network at Nike, will also join to share his experience and insights on leadership and culture in the workplace.  We hope this will be a space for collective learning and you will walk away with a better understanding of how you can leverage your unique culture and identities to demonstrate BIPOC leadership skills for a better future.


Special thanks to the U.S. Department of State for sponsoring this workshop series.
