‘Developing Strengths for Women in Leadership’ Workshop to Donate Proceeds to Nanhi Kali
Join the College of Professional Studies and the Nanhi Kali Syracuse University Chapter for “Developing Strengths for Women in Leadership,” a virtual workshop designed to help participants use their natural talents to feel empowered and unlock their potential. The workshop is open to all community members.
With help and guidance from Liz Green, executive director for online student success in the College of Professional Studies, and a pre-workshop CliftonStrengths assessment, participants will explore how their top five strengths can help them support, engage and advocate for themselves and others in leadership. The cost of the workshop supports Nanhi Kali’s initiative to raise funds for uniforms, school supplies and tuition costs for girls in India who are otherwise unable to attend elementary or middle school on their own.
Two Zoom workshop options are available and open to all on April 1 and April 8 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET. The cost to attend is $52.
The workshop will donate 100% of the profits to Nanhi Kali, “an organization initiated by Mahindra in India, with a goal to educate underprivileged girls,” says Ruchita Harsora, Nanhi Kali’s Syracuse University chapter president.
“The workshop will encompass multiple avenues for self-reflection and engagement activities for participants to better understand their individual Top 5 Strengths and communicate with others about their strengths,” Green says. “CliftonStrengths provides a common lens for us to share and connect with our colleagues, coworkers and friends, and provides a foundation for us to effectively advocate for ourselves and others.”
As a registered graduate student organization, the Nanhi Kali Syracuse University chapter aims to raise awareness about the importance of educational access, Harsora says.
“This specific opportunity helps us give back to the community one of the essentials—education. Education is the steppingstone to success in any field and it’s a golden opportunity for us to give something back to an underserved community,” Harsora says. “We get a chance to give the privilege of education to the generation that is going to shape our future.”
