IEEW 2021 Leadership Development: Moving Forward with Resilience

After a very difficult year, our IEEW's 2021 Leadership Development event is just around the corner, and we are excited to honor our Afghan and Rwandan students! We will be united from a distance, using the time to build connections and share meaningful lessons.

For the first time ever, we will be hosting a Business Pitch Competition for the top 20 Afghan and Rwandan students who submit applications. They will have the opportunity to pitch their business concept to a panel of five judges. Thanks to our amazing partner, AT&T, who is providing a cash prize to our winners to invest into their business!

In addition, we've got a lineup of fantastic speakers who will be sharing their expertise on topics ranging from crisis management to moving a business online. There will also be a special message from Dr. Kent MacDonald, President and CEO of Northwood University. During the graduation ceremony, we will be giving out the National Business Association and Enterprising Women awards.
