W2W Leadership Initiative’s August Updates
Updates on WILMA's Women to Watch Leadership Initiative
WILMA’s Women to Watch Leadership Initiative has updates to share as we continue to work on the effort’s core mission of helping develop more women leaders in our area. Here’s what we’ve been up to with various W2W Leadership Initiative programs and what’s coming up next:
LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE: Members of the 2022 WILMA’s Leadership Institute have recently met for skills sessions at Live Oak Bank to discuss strategic thinking with CEO Chip Mahan (above) and at Cameron Art Museum to hear from panelists Natalie English, Wilmington Chamber of Commerce president and CEO; Lisa Leath, Vantaca chief people officer; and Ruth Smith, RR Smith Strategic Solutions president. The Institute is made up of forty women who meet monthly for leadership skills training, interaction with area executives, and peer mentoring sessions. Applications for next year’s class open again in the fall.
WILMA NETWORK: The WILMA Network, made up of women from the companies that support the Women to Watch initiative, serves as a resource for the women involved and represents a variety of area businesses, large and small. Members participate in monthly small-group networking events.
GETTING SOCIAL: Check out the initiative’s social media pages, where you can find the latest info about leadership program announcements, applications, and updates on women who have been involved with W2W. Follow us at facebook.com/WILMAsWomenToWatch and on Instagram @WILMAsWomentoWatch.
