Person standing in the sunset

You’re invited to attend the free Game Changers workshop series! Throughout semester 2, the series is designed to support you in developing the skills, mindset, and habits of a values-driven leader, with the capacity to lead from where you are.

Available both online and on-campus, you’ll get to work alongside like-minded students to learn strategies for goal setting, public speaking, building and maintaining professional networks and more.

With a new topic each week, each workshop has been co-designed with students who want to share the skills, tools and mindsets that have supported them to lead across different aspects of their lives.

You’ll also have the opportunity to consider your own leadership identity and personal philosophy while reflecting on real-world volunteering or work experiences.
