Leadership Mentor: Olga Gladkikh
Olga Gladkikh was my mentor for the CWF-LI, Olga provided me with a lot of great insight and information on that allowed me to develop my leadership capacity. She was also an expert on Conflict Management and advocacy, which were two key focus areas for my learning. Through my communication and mentoring with Olga, I was able seek answers to questions that normally would not fit into the academic/professional world. Olga provided me with advice and concrete steps to achieve my leadership development goals.
