Stories are more memorable and more persuasive than data or definitions, and effective leaders are also often effective storytellers.
So what makes an effective story? Are you born knowing how to tell a compelling story or can you learn how? In this session, we'll discuss a structure for building effective, quick stories.

The Department of World Languages and the Center for Latino Studies present "Ixcanul" (translates roughly to "volcano" in the Mayan dialect of Kaqchikel). The plot underlines the conflict between a mother who wants to marry her daughter to a man she does not like. The young woman would prefer to run away with a boy she likes, and both of them would like to immigrate to the United States eventually. The film evidences the young woman's confrontation with the modern world-a plot point that is based on the real-life, ongoing exploitation of indigenous people in Guatemala. View Event
