service to Alpha Kappa Alpha and other organizations and institutions.
The international president said that the learning focus for Leadership 2011 parallels the sorority’s global vision that is embraced under the sorority’s programmatic theme: “Global Leadership Through Timeless Service.”
Said Stewart: “With the world becoming more complex, it is crucial that individuals are equipped to lead with boldness, vision and imagination. Through the curriculum taught by Alpha Kappa Alpha’s leaders, the conference will realize its objective to nurture and cultivate future leaders who can take on these awesome challenges. The tools they will be taught will empower them to lead at every level of the leadership spectrum, including within the sorority, their communities and the world. With historic Atlanta as the backdrop, we will be inspired to achieve these goals. In keeping with AKA’s service mission, we will also render service to those who are most vulnerable.”
Stewart announced that as part of its mission to serve Atlanta, members would donate school supplies to a variety of Atlanta-based organizations during its youth summit.
The sorority will also engage in an environmental outdoor project in collaboration with the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance.
In summing up the spirit of the visit, Stewart said, “It is our hope that Alpha Kappa Alpha’s visit will give Atlanta an economic and psychological boost that will be felt long after the conference has ended.”
