McNulty Students Learn How To Lead

Since the spring semester started 8 weeks ago, McNulty students have been doing a deep dive into what it takes to be strong leaders–in the classroom, in the lab and in the world.

After hosting Deb Weinstein, former VP of Human Resources at Glaxo SmithKline Oncology in January, in February we welcomed Due Quach, Author, Founder and CEO of Calm Clarity, an enterprise that uses science to empower people to address complex social issues (such as unconscious bias, trauma and socioeconomic, racial and gender inequality).  And last week, we enjoyed a presentation from Cathy Jackson, SJU alumna and former Chief Administrative Officer of Radian Group, Inc., and Capmark Financial Group, Inc., about leadership, mentorship and stepping up to the plate.

Our work is now informed by a new member of the McNulty Program community, Elena Lvina, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Management, E.K. Haub School of Business.  Dr. Lvina serves as the McNulty Leadership Fellow and develops a curriculum that supports and builds upon  advice and guidance shared by the guest speakers that we host throughout the year.  This semester, she has worked with McNulty students on negotiation techniques, mentorship and self-awareness, and decision making.
