Outstanding Leaders Forum
Leadership is the theme of the Outstanding Leaders Forum, Wilkes University’s premier event of the year. We take great pride in introducing the university and community to prominent leaders from a variety of backgrounds.
This forum is presented by Wilkes University’s Jay S. Sidhu School of Business and Leadership. The Sidhu School educates students in the skills they’ll need for success in an ever-changing world of business and also develops the leadership abilities and the emotional intelligence required to guide modern commerce. Wilkes aims to produce leaders with the ethics, sensitivity, courage and passion to motivate and inspire others. Proceeds from the Outstanding Leaders Forum support scholarships to worthy Sidhu students.
In addition, high school students are invited to spend the afternoon learning about leadership, engaging in a lively question-and-answer session with the speaker, and attend the lecture. This outreach effort to high schools is part of Wilkes’ desire to inspire the imaginations of this region’s next generation of leaders.
