Holmes Leadership Symposium Call for Poster Presentations

If you are conducting research on any aspect of leadership, teamwork, diversity, inclusion, or related topics, you are invited to present a poster at the Holmes Leadership Symposium on Thursday, Feb. 27, at the Oklahoma Memorial Union. The symposium is a biennial event hosted by the Jerry Holmes Leadership Program at OU's Gallogly College of Engineering. This year’s theme is Leadership for a Changing World, and we will be exploring various aspects of diversity in leadership.

If you’d like to participate, please email with the title of your research and a brief synopsis. Include "Symposium Poster Session” as the subject line. We are interested in research related to any of the items on our list of leadership capabilities ( and we are especially interested in work that explores the intersection of these topics with diversity and inclusion. 

The grad student poster session will be held in conjunction with the evening reception at 5:00 PM in the OMU Governor’s Room. We hope you will make plans to attend other symposium events as well. This year's event will open with a lunchtime plenary address by Dr. Robin Minthorn, associate professor at the University of Washington Tacoma and an expert in Native American leadership. Terri Kelly, retired CEO of W. L. Gore and Associates, will give the keynote address over dinner. The day will include workshops, invited talks, and panel discussions, all related to the theme. The symposium is open to the public and will be relevant for a broad audience, from students to experienced professionals. Register and read more about the symposium at
