“I have some great news to share with you and I was wondering if you would either send it along for me or send me in the right direction. The news is that I have not only developed the position in the Emergency Department, Lead CNA, it finally went through and it's official.  I am now one of five new Lead CNAs in the Emergency Department at the Miriam Hospital. I could not have done this alone, without the help and guidance from the Leadership Academy.”

“Honestly, I am not sure if I have thanked or gave enough praise to the Leadership Academy. It totally elevated my career, my self-awareness, in a way I could not imagine. It was brilliant and I am very grateful to have been part of this pilot cohort. Thank you for having me!”

About Bristol’s Leadership Academy

The Bristol Leadership Academy is a nine-week leadership training symposium that prepares students each year to be effective global citizens who are engaged in transforming their communities.

The Leadership Academy seeks to actively engage Bristol student leaders in a variety of discussions, lectures, activities, and experiential opportunities related to leadership development. Each session will be conducted in seminar-style with occasional lectures but will consist primarily of class discussions and activities based on specific topics.
