It is important for counseling leadership to be representative of our diverse clients and counselors including women and racial/ethnic minorities. Relational-Cultural Theory (RCT) provides a framework for teaching relational skills needed to navigate leadership positions and empower masters and doctoral students from underrepresented cultures. RCT based activities to engage students in developing relational leadership skills will be outlined. Discussion will emphasize ways to support relational leadership qualities through developing growth fostering relationships with mentors and supervisors. In particular, the experiences of emerging leaders from underrepresented groups will be discussed along with supporting their skill development to navigate unfamiliar cultural workplace terrains.
