Men In Leadership 2013

Conference Mission

The mission of the Men in Leadership Initiative is to specifically target the male demographic of the Barry University campus, along with community affiliates, in order to foster and stimulate healthy discussions in a controlled and safe environment that minimizes the social taboos that men face. The goal of this mini conference is to discuss a variety of topics including financial planning, spirituality, etiquette, and a commitment to lifelong learning. Our hope is that this conference provides the Barry University men with the impetus needed to make a positive impact on themselves, their social environments, and the global community.
