The Husky Leadership Initiative is excited to host two more Leadership Firesides this winter quarter! Leadership Firesides aim to provide an opportunity for UW students to engage in meaningful dialogue with a diverse range of civic, corporate and campus leaders and hear their personal stories of leadership in an informal setting.
March 6 | Leadership Fireside with Peter Chiarelli
General Peter Chiarelli, United States Army (retired), serves as the chief executive at the non-profit organization One Mind Research and brings powerful forces together to focus on mental illness and brain injury. Leadership skills like strategy development, collaboration, influence, and innovation span many fields and careers—students are invited to learn more about Chiarelli’s own tour of leadership through an accomplished career in the service to now leading a national effort to raise awareness of and funding for some of the biggest issues facing health care.
