Kashay SandersKashay Sanders, MBA 2019
Poets & Quants 2019 Brightest & Best MBA
Leadership Crisis Challenge participant & finalist

“{‘During LCC’}, I had the responsibility of presenting to our “board,” a group of real senior leaders brought in from across industries. I was terrified, thinking I had tanked the presentation. However, when they gave me feedback, I was shocked. They didn’t care about the words I stumbled over or an answer that wasn’t perfect. They were impressed by the compassion I brought to a tragic situation. That day, I received an “Executive Presence” award from the board, but what I took away was something much greater—confidence that I have a valuable leadership perspective, grounded in emotional awareness, to contribute in business contexts.” – Kashay Sanders
