Editor's Notes

  1. Ask the audience to share their perspective about leadership
  2. As a Google Developer Student Clubs lead, the selected leader will form, build and grow a community of student developers from your campus interested in learning and growing as professionals. From getting the right approvals to set the Club in their institution, to promoting the club on the campus to drive memberships to helping the community grow, the GDSC Lead wears different hats through their journey as a GDSC Lead. And while they do this, the journey will be a roller coaster ride, full of learnings.
