The 2019 Zada Cooper Leadership Symposium was a complete success with over 175 students, practitioners, alumni, colleagues, and friends in attendance. Keynote speaker Jannet Carmichael, '75 BSPh, PharmD, and negotiations workshop leader Michele Williams, PhD, assistant professor, UI Tippie College of Business, were phenomenal in engaging and encouraging attendees to use their personal strengths for leadership success. Breakout session presenters, moderators, and panelists appealed to their audiences in handling setbacks and failures, being your authentic self, creating your "X Factor," navigating dual career partnerships, mental health and well-being topics, and providing advice on creating a letter of intent/cover letter writing. 

Many thanks to all presenters, those in attendance, and those assisting with the symposium. Below please find the slide show presentations from the 2019 Zada Cooper Leadership Symposium:
