First lady Eleanor Roosevelt is regarded as one of the most prolific female leaders in recent American history. Orphaned at 10 years old, Mrs. Roosevelt overcame adversity and dedicated her life to fighting for justice and equality.

In this 6-hour workshop, Montana clerks, treasurers, and finance officers will explore the leadership techniques and tools utilized by Mrs. Roosevelt to overcome political, social, and personal challenges.

The book is available through amazon.com and often at local book stores. Participants are responsible for obtaining and reading the book prior to the dialogue.

Athenian Dialogues are educational events that allow participants to explore leadership theory, practice, and principles. In the context of Leadership the Eleanor Roosevelt
Way, participants will discuss the book’s themes and key ideas, and apply that information to their role as a leader in their community and municipal organization.

The facilitator for this Athenian Dialogue is Ashley Kent, an associate specialist with the Local Government Center at Montana State University Extension.
