W2W Leadership Initiative’s October Updates
Apply for WILMA's Leadership Institute
Applications for the 2020 WILMA’s Leadership Institute are now open through the end of October.
The Institute, part of our Women to Watch Leadership Initiative, gives participating women a unique opportunity to learn from top leaders in the region, visit a range of local companies, and serve as each other’s personal board of directors.
The nine-month program starts in January and meets once a month. Next year’s class will be selected from an application and interview process with our advisory board. Up to thirty-two women will be selected.
This year’s cohort marked the end of their program with a graduation ceremony September 18 (shown above).
The class, which included women from a variety of fields and roles, invited colleagues, supervisors, and family members to the event.
Throughout the year’s program, they heard from business and community leaders on skills such as motivating teams, negotiating techniques, managing conflict, and more. Classes took place at area sites from Live Oak Bank to the Port of Wilmington.
The cost for the nine-month program is $2,150, and there are some need-based scholarships, underwritten by our sponsors, for those who work in the nonprofit field.
