IVT sponsored “Take the Leading Role” Performing Arts & Leadership Conference
InnoVector Tech was the sponsor for the Take the Leading Role Performing Arts & Leadership Conference at Alfred University on September 10th. The conference was a capstone project for Elisabeth Estep, a Judson Leadership Center Women’s Leadership Academy student. The conference was devoted to teaching students how skills commonly used in the performing arts can be utilized to develop leadership skills and advance any career. Attendees participated in three workshop sessions focusing on dance, theater, and music. They also enjoyed lunch and a panel discussion of individuals who spoke about how they utilize performing arts skills in their current, non-performing arts careers.
InnoVector Tech is proud to support young leaders who work to improve and empower others in creative ways that are focused on bettering their community. “My liberal arts course of studies during my undergraduate education at Alfred University provided invaluable tools that have helped me in the many leadership roles that I have had as a women entrepreneur, board member, and community volunteer,” said Nannette Stangle-Castor, president of InnoVector Tech. “Integrating dance, music, and other performance classes into my otherwise heavy science course load was very beneficial to me, helping me to become more confident in public presentions, as well as more effective in engaging with people from many different backgrounds.”
