Annual Conferences

The Kravis Leadership Institute hosts, partners, sponsors, and participates in a number of conferences on and off campus for students and the greater 7C Community. These opportunities allow for participants to learn from others, exchange ideas, network, and hear from industry experts. 


Kravis-de Roulet Conference

The Kravis-de Roulet Leadership conferences, which began in 1990, are annual leadership conferences funded jointly by an endowment from Henry R. Kravis and the de Roulet family. This perpetual funding, along with additional support from the Kravis Leadership Institute and Claremont McKenna College, enables us to attract the finest leadership scholars and practitioners as conference presenters and participants.              


Women in Leadership Workshop
