Visions in Leadership

Visions in Leadership 2017

Visions in Leadership was founded by the QVCC Foundation in 2010 as an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and community members to listen to and learn from speakers of national recognition. Our goal is to show our community that there is a world beyond NE Connecticut and that individuals can achieve great things regardless of personal circumstance.

On March 23rd, 2017 a sold-out audience gathered to hear Waniya Locke and Jessye Stein speak on the instrumental roles they played in the No Dakota Access Pipeline (#NoDAPL) Movement. Guests enjoyed dinner, drinks and a silent auction.

Special thanks to the Savings Institute Bank and Trust for co-sponsoring the event and to Jessica Tuesday’s for the delicious feast.
