Leadership training sessions attended by two East Stroudsburg women

July 14, 2018 by  

Attending the Leadership Institute for Undergraduate Women recently were two students representing East Stroudsburg University (ESU). The goal of the institute is to encourage the leadership potential of female students enrolled in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE).

There were 50 women attending the five-day institute from 14 PASSHE universities. Denasia Mosteller, a junior from Phillipsburg, New Jersey, majoring in criminal justice, and Adrienne Castro, a senior from Philadelphia majoring in social work, attended the institute representing ESU.

Among the workshops during the five days were sessions on self-discovery exercises as well as sessions that were geared towards more concrete skill building, such as utilizing existing resources, networking with other women, managing career and family, and application of leadership styles.

Those students who wanted to apply for the institute needed to have a grade point average of 2.5, demonstrate leadership skills, and be involved in community or on campus. After attending the institute, participants are expected to start a project of their choosing over the next academic year using the skills they have learned.

Castro is planning an event on women’s empowerment while Mosteller plans to hold a toiletry drive for women in need.

Brochure printing companies might be used to create brochures with more information reinforcing the skills learned from such workshops that attendees can takeaway once they start the academic year.
