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:

W2W ALUM: Last month, we held an event for our previous Leadership Institute grads and WILMA Awards honorees. The networking event (above), took place at Waterman’s Brewing Company’s Ohana Room and include branding tips from Stephanie Lanier, Lisa Leath, and Hayley Luckadoo.

LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE: Members of this year’s WILMA’s Leadership Institute met in September to hear from Michele Holbrook, capital program manager, optical fiber and cable for Corning Incorporated, about strengths-based leadership. The group also talked with The Forté Institute about class members’ individual communication style profiles. 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 December.

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.
