Dulye Leadership Experience (DLE) President and Founder Linda Dulye and DLE member Anna Worley, systems engineer at General Dynamics Mission Systems, served as volunteer leadership coaches this month for participants of the 2022 BETA Program at the Berkshire Innovation Center in Pittsfield, MA.
BETA is an experiential learning program that connects high school and college students with businesses to explore idea development and business strategies. Linda and Anna’s workshop focused on communication and networking skills to help students confidently project their best, connect with others and transition from their academic career to vocation.
The DLE has supported the BETA program since its inception in 2020, working closely with Assistant Director Kate Light on engaging next-generation leaders to see and seize opportunities for personal growth.
Kate shares, “It’s critical for young adults entering college (or the workforce) to practice communicating effectively, advocating for themselves, and learning how to share their positive qualities to position themselves as desirable candidates for their next opportunity. Linda and Anna are passionate about equipping people with these capabilities and their dynamic workshops are fun and engaging. I wish that I was fortunate enough to participate in this workshop as a young adult.”
