Hey You! Leadership U

Now this is a great program, and one I had some input into many years ago!

Bayer's Leadership U is a six-week, paid summer internship program starting in June for certain qualified young people with hemophilia. Applications are due Friday, February 12, 2016 and interns will be selected by Friday, March 18, 2016. All housing, travel and related activities will be organized and underwritten by Bayer. I mean, does it get any better? 

Selected interns will:
·        Engage in leadership training and hands-on business projects
·        Learn how to support the hemophilia community as a potential future leader
·        Participate in formal training on communication skills, effective problem solving and leadership
·        Spend time with mentors within Bayer to gain insights into the inner workings of the various corporate departments — emphasizing the importance of collaboration
·        Collaborate with local hemophilia organizations and learn about efforts to support the hemophilia community and partnerships with business professionals
·        Be responsible for developing a project that will be presented to Bayer senior management

The program also includes a meeting with healthcare public policy professionals in Washington D.C., a community advocacy-focused visit to the National Hemophilia Foundation in New York City, and activities with Bayer's partners. Incredible.

This is a unique and powerful program that will teach you a tremendous amount of business, nonprofit and advocacy skills. Apply today!

Great Book I Just Read

The Night of the Grizzlies [Kindle]
Jack Olsen

Master true-crime storyteller Olsen recounts the true tale of a bizarre night in 1967 at Glacier National Park, when a perfect storm of humans, bears, lax policies, and inexperienced rangers came together after grizzlies attacked two 19-year-old girls in one night in separate attacks. Why did they attack? What did the humans do wrong? How did the campers and rangers react after the attacks? It was a wake up call from hell, as those involved realized that just because grizzlies had not attacked a human in 57 years, they are still wild and unpredictable. Edge of the seat thriller, page turner. It is heart-wrenching, sad but powerful. I'm now an official Jack Olsen fan. Four/five stars.
