Leadership lessons outside the classroom

Under the guidance of Prof. Nadene Canning, BSL Master students in the Management and Leadership Skills class engaged in providing service to politically displaced refugees in Geneva. The initiative was organized in collaboration with the THRIVE association and challenged our students to take a step towards people with difficult life circumstances and support their integration through engaging in one-to-one conversations.

The activity offered an opportunity for our students to practice their listening and empathy skills, as well as to broaden their perspective and learn more about people coming from war-torn countries. More importantly, this was an exercise of showing up and being there for another human being, says Prof. Canning.

The students participated in a “reverse” job fair where refugees were presenting their skills experience in an attempt to find matching opportunities for work and meaningful engagement during their stay in Switzerland. We thank the wonderful team at THRIVE for making this activity possible and for helping our students go through emotionally difficult moments.
