Leadership book club launched via Ripple Effect grant

As a result of the recent Ripple Effect grant awards, a Leadership Book Club for Women is being launched in March, to help women hone their leadership skills and network. The book club proposal was submitted by Lindsay Mason, a program coordinator in Off Campus Life. The Ripple Effect grant provides an opportunity to purchase books from the CSU Bookstore featured by the book club at a steeply reduced price.ripple-effect600   What’s the book club all about? The Leadership Book Club will meet every 6 weeks to discuss the current book. Each book will have a leadership theme or focus. The book will be available at the CSU Bookstore, and a $15 discount will be given to the first 30 women who purchase the book at the CSU Bookstore. The meetings will include large and small group discussions with the hope that each participant can reflect on lessons and take-aways from each book.   Who can participate? Anyone staff or faculty member at CSU who identifies as woman can participate in the Leadership Book Club.   When: First book chosen and first meeting scheduled! The first book the Leadership Book Club will be discussing is Yes, And: How Improvisation Reveres “No, But” Thinking and Improves Creativity and Collaboration – Lessons from the Second City by Kelly Leonard and Tom Yorton. It is available at the bookstore now! This first book will only cost $4.59 +tax for the first 30 women who buy it at the bookstore, thanks to Ripple Effect grant money in support of the club. The discount is meant only for women who can commit to attending this Leadership Book Club meeting; those who do not plan to attend the meeting, please do not take advantage of this discount. The Leadership Book Club will discuss this book from noon-1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25, in Lory Student Center Room 372-374. Light refreshments will be provided.
