Application Short Questions
The FluidReview Application will require you to answers to the following questions:
Question 1 (300 words): Effective leaders are self-aware, they understand their strengths and areas for growth, and they seek opportunities to further develop and partner with others who complement them. Please describe what perspectives, skills, and experiences you would bring to this program. What do you hope to gain from participating at the Summit? Please be specific and reflective as you explain what you hope to learn and why.
Question 2 (300 words): Working with people who have different perspectives is a common leadership challenge. How have you worked with others across difference? This can encompass working with individuals or groups with diverse approaches and/or identities and backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability status, religious or spiritual affiliation, and/or cultural tradition. Please be specific about what you did and learned about yourself from this experience.
Question 3 (300 words): One of the sessions we will offer at the Summit is a panel with speakers representing diverse perspectives on environmental issues beyond climate change. Our goal is for speakers to help us examine why this conversation is not just about climate change and what is the role of leadership in solving complex global issues like our current environmental crisis. Why is this topic important? Please share one or two questions you might pose to the panel.
