Event description

Description

When was the last time you got out of your comfort zone? Took a risk? Worked with a team to solve a challenge? Learned a new sport? This leadership lab will introduce you to a style of rock climbing called bouldering. Awaken your courage and your ability to take strategic risks through this experiential activity. We will practice being leaders who can learn something new, overcome challenges, problem-solve on the spot and feel success. This workshop will be led by experienced climbers and followed by a moderated discussion with Athena staff on how to use this experience to reach greater heights as a woman leader. No prior rock climbing experience necessary. Beginners welcome. All equipment and fees are provided. The lab is free to you.**

Note: This lab meets offsite at STEEP ROCK WEST 603 W 129TH ST NEW YORK, NY 10027 (about a 10-15 minute walk from campus, at the corner of Broadway and 129th).

Please arrive between 1:30pm and 1:45pm. To save time upon arrival at the gym, please fill out this waiver in advance.
