The Center for Leadership, Innovation, and Mentorship Building (CLIMB) Seminar

The CLIMB speaker seminars are designed to explore different leadership topics and how they impact organizations. Guest speakers share their views and experiences from various business, community and academic backgrounds. The seminars occur each semester and are open to the greater university and surrounding communities. 

Spring 2020 Events:

  • Women's Leadership Symposium 

    • Saturday, Feb. 29th 8:30 AM- 3:00 PM

    • CSUSM, University Student Union

    • Description:
      Throughout the day, we seek to provide students the opportunity to learn more about their individual identities and the unique influences they have on their leadership style. Networking and teambuilding activities will allow for students to build a positive and supportive network of diverse women who vary across professional disciplines and life experiences. With these new experiences and community, student participants will have the knowledge to challenge the limitations placed on women and will have the confidence and strength to empower others.

      Note: This event is only for currently enrolled CSUSM students.
