The McDonough Center encourages its McDonough Scholars to share their research with the academic community. Aside from helping them disseminate their scholarly work, conference presentations also help the students sharpen their communication skills.

Leadership students, Sarah Waitz ’10, Sarah Griffin ’12, Emily McGinty ’10, and Laura Aldrich ‘10, along with the faculty guidance of Dr. Robert McManus and Dr. Tanya Judd-Pucella, traveled to Prague, Czech Republic, in November 2009 to present their research at the International Leadership Association (ILA) conference in November.  The group had worked with a team of three Czech students from Palacky University (Olomouc), studying the rhetoric of two Czech Leaders (Vlasta Parkanova and Vlaclav Havel) and two American leaders (Hilary Clinton and Arnold Schwarzenegger). The group compared the rhetoric of the male and female leaders, based on stereotypical traits to see if their leadership styles matched these traits. The team then presented the findings at a round table discussion.
