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 Accelerator: Five Mondays; five engaging discussions on how to lead in a variety of situations. This year’s Leadership Accelerator conference took place virtually, with a different taped or live video broadcasting each week on WILMA’s social media channels. To catch up on the videos, go to WILMALeadership.com.

Leadership Institute: In June, WILMA’s Leadership Institute, made up of thirty-two women who are part of this year’s cohort for the nine-month program, participated in a virtual skills workshop on effective pitching of ideas and projects. They also met in their peer advisory groups and held discussions on best practices while working remotely.

WILMA Leadership Email: If you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to read WILMA’s Monday emails, which focus on leadership topics and profiles.

WILMA Network: Members of the WILMA Network, made up of sponsors of the Women to Watch Leadership Initiative, turned to the web to hold meetups in June.
