In person Global Leader Experience a success for students

The Global Leader Experience, in partnership with Common Purpose, took place at Storey Hall across two days.

The event gathered over 100 students to work in teams to propose a solution to the challenge: The desire to belong is a basic human need; how can we create a deeper sense of connection in our community?

This was the first time since 2019 that the Global Leader Experience took place face-to-face, which gave students a chance to reconnect with their peers and receive insights from industry partners.

The program gave the students the opportunity to practice their presentation skills as they pitched their solution to a panel of industry experts from companies such as PwC, City of Melbourne, Victorian Pride Centre and many more. 

Here is what students had to say about the event!

Mallika said it was "the best two days at RMIT so far", and had a few takeaways from the sessions, including:

  • The opposite of belonging is not loneliness but fitting in
  • Being respectful is acting and speaking in a way that’s kind, safe and fair
  • New ideas are usually born by the integration of two existing/old ideas

Jordan said that the event was unforgettable.

“Overall it has been an exhausting and exhilarating past two days, which I truly will never forget."

Students also engaged on social media to share their excitement.

Second day of the Common Purpose Global Leadership program! Having the best time, what an eye opener.
