The Nancy Walton Laurie Leadership Institute of Chi Omega

The Nancy Walton Laurie Leadership Institute of Chi Omega is preparing women to lead in their communities, work places, homes, and in Chi Omega.

The Nancy Walton Laurie Leadership Institute of Chi Omega is a distinguished program designed to engage alumnae and collegiate members in leadership training that is both insightful and inspiring. Through this training, we empower our members to explore and learn steps that result in extensive personal growth. Our goal is to develop professionals who in turn will share their knowledge and skills with others on their campuses and in their communities.

The Laurie Leadership Institute, supported by a grant from the Chi Omega Foundation, provides educational sessions on a variety of topics. The current educational modules focus on effective strategies in such areas as decision-making, conflict resolution, facilitation, life balance, values and ethics, and the 4 Cs of leadership.

Chi Omega offers The Laurie Leadership Institute training in a variety of ways including a Flagship weekend at the Executive Headquarters and leadership programming at national meetings. Select collegiate and alumnae chapters have the opportunity to experience abbreviated versions of these workshops through regional, chapter, and even all-Panhellenic sessions.

Your donations to the Chi Omega Foundation can make it possible for more Chi Omega members to benefit from this exceptional training.

The Convention 2016 Leadership Track, The Resilient Leader, is the Laurie Leadership Institute's newest module.

In our complex world, resilience is an important attribute for Chi Omega leaders in any stage of life. Participants will focus on understanding their own strengths and learning to leverage them through an individual strengths assessment, moving forward from setbacks and adversity, and exploring the ways that adversity can lead to growth.

In addition to experiencing the full Laurie Leadership Institute curriculum, participants will also be able to experience all meals, business meetings, and special activities associated with Convention 2016.
