Social Etiquette for Our Next Generation of Leaders


February 27, 2016

B.E.S.T. and the Gilman Black Alumni Leadership Institute

On Saturday, February 27th, as part of the Molly Hathaway Young Women’s and
Redmond C.S. Finney Young Men’s Leadership Programs – 33 Upper School B.E.S.T. students joined GBALI for our third annual joint event entitled: “Social Etiquette for Our Next Generation of Leaders.”

The Pope Institute for Polish, Poise, and Etiquette led an interactive morning of workshops to help students successfully navigate their future development and social opportunities. They covered topics that included knowledge about first impressions, proper business attire, and “netiquette” – creating a positive and appropriate social media presence.

This year, B.E.S.T. has 11 students as part of the GBALI cohort of 34 students that meets each Saturday, October through May.

A special thank you to The Pope Institute’s Kimberly Pope, Roderic Baker and Ijea “EJ” Alfred for sharing your expertise and advice with our students; and our heartfelt appreciation to the Directors of GBALI for your continued partnership.
