For the third year in a row Robert Day Scholars at CMC practiced pitching senior executives (who also happen to be CMC alumni) in a “Pitch Day” workshop that is designed to give students the opportunity to develop and practice all-important presentation skills that they will use early in their careers.

During November, the Robert Day Scholars Program hosted two leadership development workshops that were intended to extend the students’ knowledge base while providing them with practical frameworks that could be utilized in their careers.

An Ethics in Leadership Workshop convened on November 13th in the Kravis Center that was taught jointly by Alex Rajczi, the Deborah and Kenneth Novack ’67 Associate Professor of Leadership and Ethics at CMC and Ken Novack ’67, Chairman of Avinger, Inc. and member of the CMC Board of Trustees.
