Leadership does not take place in a contextual vacuum. It is the product of many processes that come together in a specific time, contributing to a complex human phenomenon. Please join us as we explore two aspects of this conference theme, “Leadership Through Time” – (1) The historical dynamic of leadership; and (2) Leadership across generations. In the first aspect, we draw leadership lessons by exploring the experiences of the past. Historical leaders are often studied to help us understand how leadership works in different contexts. In the second aspect, we are particularly interested in the way different generations have influenced leadership through the decades. In particular, we would like to explore the way multiple generations affect leadership – e.g., the presence of the Millennials in the workplace.
 

 
It is in this spirit of intellectual exploration, scholarship, self-reflection and personal leadership development that the McDonough Leadership Center annually hosts the McDonough Leadership Conference, a national conference focused on undergraduate research on leadership studies. Through the generous support of corporate sponsors, the conference is offered free of charge. Participants are responsible for their transportation and lodging.
