GSA President to talk student leadership, effecting change at upcoming session

Student and campus leadership will be the focus of the next Women in Leadership (WIL) session, when Brock Graduate Students’ Association (GSA) President and CEO Haley Myatt presents.

The Child and Youth Studies graduate student, who holds degrees in public relations and international human rights and is an award-winning leader, has more than 11 years of experience with post-secondary student governance at provincial, national and international levels.

She has been involved with several campaigns and referendums aimed at improving student experiences in post-secondary institutions, including a nationally recognized sexual health and guidance campaign, increases in mental health support services and, here at Brock, a referendum for a new graduate student building.

In her Women and Leadership talk, taking place virtually Tuesday, Nov. 1 from noon to 1 p.m., Myatt says she will reflect on her journey and how she tries to “find the extra in the ordinary, come into passions with compassion and acknowledge loneliness within leadership” to “offer a perspective that is not often discussed on campus.”

Details on this and other upcoming Women in Leadership sessions, including dates, descriptions and login details are available on the WIL website.

Women in Leadership is committed to supporting and advancing persons who identify as women to achieve and succeed in leadership. All are welcome. Individuals are welcome to join the WIL channel on Microsoft Teams or to contact Jeannie Mackintosh to be added to the WIL email distribution list.
