Top educators in the chemical engineering field will discuss how leadership development is addressed through the ChE undergraduate and graduate curriculum and experience. The panelists will discuss strategies for developing engineers into leaders, how these strategies can be improved and more widely used, and how industry and volunteer organizations can both help to develop our future leaders during their formal education and learn to tap into those educational experiences to further develop industry and academic leaders as they begin their careers.
