In the midst of this global pandemic, the Program for Leadership and Character has come up with several programming offerings for students and members of the Wake Forest community. We hope these programming opportunities provide a space to contemplate the state of our world and our lives, engage with others, and discuss the role and relevance of leadership and character in this time of crisis.
- Movie Nights with Leadership and Character: Join other Wake Forest students to discuss popular movies like A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Black Panther, and Little Women with staff from the Program for Leadership and Character. In these uncertain times, we see these groups as an opportunity to invest in community and gather wisdom from each other and these great films. Follow this link to sign up for a discussion.
- Call to Conversation: Virtual Conversations: Although not a part of their traditional brand of a “seated meal with a moderated conversation,” Call to Conversation will still be creating a space for great conversation and a snack (from your very own pantry) to discuss a variety of topics this semester, including a discussion on leadership and character with Dr. Michael Lamb on Tuesday, April 21, and “Dinner Rolls, not Gender Roles: Coronavirus Edition” with Director of the Women’s Center, Steph Trilling on Wednesday, April 15. Follow this link to sign up for a virtual conversation.
- Discussion Groups: For student participants of the Spring 2020 discussion groups, we will hold our second virtual discussion group focused on friendship in the time of coronavirus on Monday, April 13. We will dive into the challenges placed on friendship in this time, the unique role of friendship in our lives, and practical tips on cultivating meaningful friendships. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
- Leadership and Character through Embodiment: Join us on Thursday, April 30 for body-centered meditation led by K. Monet Rice-Jalloh, Associate University Chaplain to practice connection with your body, followed by a discussion with Hannah Lafferrandre, Fellow in the Program for Leadership and Character, about the relation between embodiment and virtues like empathy, justice, and gratitude. We are grateful to the Women’s Center for co-sponsoring this event. Follow this link to sign up.
