Meet the #Academy18 Team - The Talks

One of the most highly anticipated parts of College Panhellenic Academy each year is "The Talks" in which NPC invites guest speakers to share words of empowerment and inspiration. Much like the style of TED talks, our idea behind "The Talks" is to highlight how our experiences and stories can teach a lesson to future leaders. Here are the #Academy18 presenters:

Cori Wallace -- For more than a decade, Cori Gilbert Wallace served as a member of Delta Gamma Fraternity’s Cabinet and Council, first as vice president: communications, and later as vice president: alumnae. Her interfraternal experience includes serving as collegiate development consultant for Delta Gamma Fraternity, and lead facilitator for North-American Interfraternity Conference leadership programs UIFI and IMPACT. She currently serves as the director of experiential marketing for OmegaFi. She lives by the credo “Seek first to understand, rather than to be understood,” and she is so proud to "Do Good" - every day, in many ways, for those who believe fraternity membership is powerful and allows for really meaningful relationships. She resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her husband David and dog Mason.

Elisabeth Logan -- Elisabeth currently serves the sorority world by traveling as a leadership consultant for Sigma Kappa Sorority. In this capacity, she visits various colleges and universities to discuss leadership development and day-to-day chapter operations, while empowering sorority women to leave a positive impact in their communities. Elisabeth loves to talk about Myers-Briggs personality types, dogs and the world of higher education. Elisabeth is an alumna of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where she served as the College Panhellenic president and earned her degree in classics. She is planning to attend law school.

Lindsay Boccardo -- Lindsay is a nationally recognized millennial expert, working with young talent and the organizations that employ them. She provides education and training to organizations through one-to-one programs, group coaching and seminars to facilitate top talent development. She has partnered with organizations such as, Intern Bridge, the Indiana Supreme Court and numerous fraternities and sororities to help them create opportunities for millennials to make powerful contributions. Lindsay is committed to bringing generations of workers together to build strong companies.

Rebecca Ramos -- Originally from Seattle, Becca recently graduated from Harvard University, where she majored in psychology and government while pursuing her love for learning Spanish and Portuguese. At Harvard, she found her home in Delta Gamma, and she quickly became highly involved as the director of recruitment and vice president of social standards as a sophomore and junior. During her senior year, while serving as president of her chapter, Becca collaborated with the Panhellenic community at Harvard to protest the sanctions imposed upon fraternity/sorority members. This year, Becca is teaching a global perspectives course to tenth grade students at the Culver Academies in Indiana, where she also coaches soccer, swimming and lacrosse and supervises a dorm of high school girls.
