Director of Leadership Development
Mindy Storrie is the Director of Leadership Development for Kenan-Flagler Business School, initiating the role in 2005 to create the Leadership Initiative. Kenan-Flagler’s leadership program is an experience-based program that assesses and then develops students’ leadership skills to better prepare them for business careers. The program exposes the student to leadership principles, inside and outside the classroom, and then gives each student the opportunity to practice leadership in meaningful, real-world situations and simulations. The Leadership Initiative impacts over 1,000 students each year, including the full-time and executive MBAs, Master of Accounting, undergraduate business, and the on-line MBA@UNC programs. Mindy’s outreach includes building relationships with corporate executives and business leaders to encourage their involvement in the portfolio of leadership initiatives.
