Leadership Center Events

Leading through Disruption

In fulfillment of the Leadership Center’s mission to explore innovative leadership knowledge and practices to better those we serve, we endeavor to provide the latest thinking on issues and trends that impact all of us.

Women have often been overlooked in their accomplishments throughout history. The National Women's History Alliance designates a yearly theme for Women's History Month. The 2024 theme celebrates Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.” 

The Franklin University Leadership Center presents a month-long tribute to Women who have and are making a difference in the lives of other women with the P.U.L.L. (powerful, unmistakable, legacy, leaders) Empowerment Series. Each empowerment session throughout March will focus on extraordinary women and their leadership.

Join us on Tuesday, March 26 for the Final Session of this year's P.U.L.L. (Powerful, Unmistakable, Legacy, Leaders) Empowerment Series as we present “There is no S.U.C.C.E.S.S without Successors” featuring Shameikia Smith, MSW, LSW - Vice President of Housing at IMPACT Community Action.

As we pause to consider defining "success" what does it mean? Are we able to intentionally create a pathway for others to succeed without a plan? Am I successful if I have not identified Successors? What does it look like for someone that wants to be the Successor? How does the Successor position themselves for success without the tools? When is the time for the Player to become the Coach? When can the Mentee be tapped as a Mentor? Who is responsible for the success of the Successor? …or does any of this really matter?
