2019-2020 Leadership Academy cohort meets in Tama for a 5-day Immersion Training
Our Native American and Alaska Native Leadership Academy kicked off with a 5-day Immersion Training at the Meskwaki Hotel and Casino in Tama, Iowa in August 2019. Mentees gathered on Monday and began their yearlong training in various leadership topics including recognizing personal strengths, delegation, the art of listening, addressing conflict, and more. On Wednesday, mentors joined the group and were trained in their roles and matched with their mentees. Leah Slick-Driscoll and Delonda Pushetonequa welcomed the attendees to the Meskwaki Settlement. We were also invited to the Meskwaki Tribal Center Museum, and gifted a meal of frye bread, beef hominy, sweet corn and fruit.
