W2W Leadership Initiative’s September 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 2019 WILMA’s Leadership Institute visited last month with incoming students of Girls Leadership Academy of Wilmington (GLOW) for a half-day of activities to help get the students excited about their new school and upcoming year (above). The rising six-graders interacted with members of the Institute, a group of women who have spent this year on leadership development training. Members of this year’s Leadership Institute graduate from the nine-month program at a special event this month. Applications for next year’s Institute open October 1.
Get on Board: Our Get on Board program seeks to help more women in the region join boards of directors. Women who complete the training session are eligible to list their backgrounds and areas of interest on our website WILMAsGetOnBoard.com so area organizations can expand their applicant pools.
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 small-group networking events called 2nd Tuesdays.
In The Loop: Keep up to date with these and other Leadership Initiative programs as well as applications announcement by going to WILMASToWatch.com or signing up for the WILMA Weekly newsletter on our website.
