Iranian Alliances Across Borders' (IAAB) Student Summit commenced on Friday, November 5 at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. This is IAAB's second biennial Summit for Iranian-American college students.
IAAB's Student Summit is a unique and unprecedented program for Iranian-American students, drawn from colleges and universities across the country. The Summit promotes committed communication between students, university groups, and organizations, providing them with the opportunity to develop leadership skills as individuals, as participants in student organizations, and as members of the Iranian diaspora community.
Over the next two days, speaker panels and small group workshops, led by fellow students as well as professionals in the fields, will focus on individual skills and management strategies, providing an atmosphere that encourages candid, open discussion and collaboration. Workshops will focus on leadership, communication, coalition building, organizational structure, community organizing and civic engagement, among others.
