Leadership Dinners

Leadership Dinners bring proven leaders from various arenas together with a small group of graduate students for dinner and informal discussion about what it means to be a leader and to lead organizations, movements, and people. This is a great opportunity to discuss leadership and career development in a casual setting with individuals who have had a major impact in a variety of settings, ranging from business to government, philanthropy, and education. 

Dinners are facilitated by Bernadine Chuck Fong, VPGE's director of leadership initiatives and special projects. Dr. Chuck Fong is President Emerita of Foothill College, where she was also professor of psychology and child development. She is a former Stanford University Trustee. Her BA, MA, and PhD are all from Stanford.
