W2W Leadership Initiative’s July 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 ACCELERATOR: More than 300 people attended this year’s Leadership Accelerator, WILMA’s annual half-day leadership and career development conference. After two years of virtual versions, this year’s event with speakers and workshops took place at the Wilmington Convention Center. For a recap of the event and to see speaker videos, go to WILMALeadership.com.
LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE: Members of the 2022 WILMA’s Leadership Institute met last month at Live Oak Bank to talk with chairman and CEO Chip Mahan, as well as other bank leaders, about thinking and planning strategically. 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.
