The latest on WILMA’s spring leadership programs

The latest on WILMA’s Women to Watch Leadership Initiative and its mission to help develop more women leaders in our area.

LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE:  The latest cohort of WILMA’s Leadership Institute graduated in December. The class of forty women went through leadership skills training, peer advisory discussions, and connections with area executives. A record number of applications – over a hundred – were submitted to participate in this year’s class, and those who are selected will begin meeting in April.

MENTORING: This year’s group of WILMA mentors and mentees have been meeting one-on-one each month to work on the women’s professional goals.

W2w Future LeadersFUTURE LEADERS: Our latest W2W group, sixteen eleventh-grade teens, also began meeting monthly with their mentors, made up of Leadership Institute alum and Awards finalists. The group meets throughout 2023. Applications for the next Future Leaders group will open up in the fall.
