Learn2Lead 2020
From June 15 through July 31, 246 high-achieving students from more than 100 colleges and universities across the U.S. participated in Learn2Lead (L2L), our national leadership program. Prior to COVID-19, this program was a two-day, in-person event held in Chicago. Crowe's Talent & Acquisition Team had to get creative in finding a new way to help students build their leadership skills and learn about Crowe careers from their homes. "Our vision for virtual L2L was to map out a variety of virtual sessions throughout the summer to keep students engaged and build a strong relationship with Crowe," shared Renee Arico, a University Talent Acquisition leader. Weekly sessions included mentor meetings, business unit presentations, a virtual community service event with Missing Maps that involved all interns and L2L students, a diversity and inclusion seminar and a team-building leadership workshop with "improve it" focused on communication in a virtual environment. Interns also heard from keynote speaker Dr. Steve L. Robbins, who talked to students about their ability to inspire people, even in the midst of disruption. "Since the students didn't have the opportunity to connect in person, the mentor groups helped participants build relationships with fellow participants as well as Crowe team members aligned to their business unit of interest," shared Renee. The virtual L2L program kept students engaged for seven weeks of sessions and provided them with the opportunity to watch recordings of their favorite topics.
