There are many articles, networks, summits and even foundations all based around the concept of becoming a global leader, but what does this mean? How does one become a global leader? Upon my first year at the University of Dayton, I knew I hoped to add an aspect to my degree to show my passion, care and appreciation for other cultures. I wanted to understand injustices occurring in our world today and broaden my ways of thought. I strived to learn more about what it means to be an intercultural leader. In this presentation, I will discuss the experiences that made adding the International and Intercultural Leadership Certificate to my degree so impactful and help shape me into a global leader.
