REAL Leadership Experience

This event gives emerging leaders the skills and confidence they need to tackle future leadership roles and challenges they never dreamed possible. 

Gamma Phi Beta’s REAL Leadership Experience (RLE) is the avenue by which we provide critical leadership development to first-and second-year members that will allow them to impact the growth of their chapter and college community. RLE is a four-day retreat-style leadership event with a select group of emerging Gamma Phi Beta leaders. Attendees will experience cutting-edge leadership development through programs including a leadership assessment, courageous conversations and developing a personal leadership brand.

RLE will be hosting two sessions on July 18-21 and July 22-25 at the Psi Chapter (Oklahoma) facility in Norman, Oklahoma. Registration opens to invited attendees on May 17 and will close at midnight Mountain Time on June 14.

Gamma Phi Beta leadership, education and philanthropic programming is funded in part by the Gamma Phi Beta Foundation. We extend our sincere gratitude to the Foundation and the many generous donors that allow the Sorority to create this programming. 

Attendee Registration Guidelines

All invited emerging Gamma Phi Beta leaders are asked to register to confirm their attendance for the REAL Leadership Experience. Invitations to register are not transferable to other chapter members. You must register for the session that you have been assigned.

Register today! The registration deadline is Friday, June 14. All registration changes should be made by June 27.

What will I experience at RLE?
Selected candidates will participate in a four-day retreat-style leadership conference with 39 other emerging Gamma Phi Beta leaders. Attendees will experience innovative leadership development through dynamic programming, small group discussions, alumnae mentorship and personal reflection.

When and where is RLE held?
Selected participants will experience the beauty of the University of Oklahoma and of one of Gamma Phi Beta's oldest chapter facilities belonging to Psi Chapter. This year we have the honor of hosting two sessions: July 18-21 and July 22-25. Selected participants must attend all days of their session; arriving late or leaving early will result in forfeiting their place in the program.

What is the cost?
There is no cost to attend REAL Leadership Experience; participants will need to pay for their own transportation, airfare or gas, to Norman, Oklahoma. Selected participants are encouraged to speak with their chapter’s executive council and chapter advisor to cover travel costs. All accommodations and meals will be covered during the four days of the program.
