2018 Student Chapter Leadership Workshop

SPIE Student Leadership at Photonics West 2018

Fifty-five students representing 44 chapters from 20 different countries filled the room for our Photonics West 2018 Student Chapter Leadership Workshop in the Marriott Marquis on Friday, 26 January.

The morning session featured best-practice chapter management scenarios in which several students acted out their approaches to addressing challenging situations in a diplomatic manner.

After lunch, facilitator Christine Haas led The Business of Storytelling Workshop. She guided the students through exercises to communicate their stories effectively in career settings. With less filler words, improved confidence, and a strategy to make their story stick, the students left the workshop with tools to improve their networking outcomes and advance their career opportunities.
