Tactics for Leading Your Community
“I really wanted to have constant communication and constant impact with our local community,” explains Edith Brignoni-Pérez, PhD candidate at Georgetown University Medical Center who also served as president and secretary of SfN’s DC Metro Area Chapter.
As president, Brignoni-Pérez intentionally branched out further into her community. She achieved success by hosting impactful events, listening to her team, and collaborating with other institutions and organizations.
Ultimately, she believes, “A leader will never be successful if they don’t put the knowledge they have about their community in the context of compassion.”
