The complex subject of leadership — who has it, who doesn’t, who should, and what makes it work? — is the focus of “Looking for Leadership: What Do We Want from Leaders?”, a free conversation with Lois Ruskai Melina at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, at Columbia Gorge Community College on its campus in The Dalles.
The presentation will be held in Room 10.105 at the Workforce Readiness Center, 400 East Scenic Drive. This program is hosted by Columbia Gorge Community College and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. The Readiness Center is the large, new building to the left of the traffic circle at the entry to the campus.
Melina has a PhD in Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University, a program that views leadership as a process of individual, organizational, and global change. She has taught leadership at Gonzaga University and Union Institute & University. She was the lead editor of the anthology “The Embodiment of Leadership.”
