I.V. League of Occupational Therapists Leadership Workshop

On April 24, the Department of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy hosted the inaugural I.V. League of Occupational Therapists Leadership Workshop for 2nd Year students in the MScOT program.
This full-day event was attended by 90 students. Using the LEADS Framework (Lead Self, Engage Others, Achieve Results, Develop Coalitions, Systems Transformation), 12 occupational therapists affiliated with the MScOT program facilitated a series of intensive group sessions aimed at guiding students in the development of skills and plans for their own leadership journey as practicing occupational therapists. The final event of the day featured an inspiring panel of new graduates who shared their leadership experiences in their nascent professional practice. All in all, the day was exciting, empowering and inspiring.
The Workshop was supported through a generous donation from Irene Vrckovnik (BScOT ’83, MScOT ‘17).
