Leadership Institute

The Division of Workforce Development's Leadership Institute promotes the development and training of existing and emerging leaders in education, public, private and non-profit organizations. Through its tailored programs and services, the Institute is committed to identifying and nurturing the next generation of leaders.

Our Leadership Institute is integrally linked to the Division’s Corporate Solutions. Whereas Corporate Solutions addresses the needs of the organization through the use of a variety of services, the Leadership Institute addresses the needs of developing leaders.
The Leadership Institute’s primary mission is to improve leadership skills, behaviors and competencies that lead to better and more decisive decision making through training.  Our leadership training is designed to meet the needs of individuals who are at different stages in their leadership development with a menu of programs that include the following:

Building Legacies

The Building Legacies Women's Leadership Summit was created to celebrate women that are making a substantive impact in our community. This year, based on the overwhelming feedback from past participants, a decision was made to turn the single day event into a series providing four unique half-day leadership sessions.  

This year's inaugural series is entitled Women Who Lead, Serve, and Inspire. Each session developed for this series captures the sheer essence of the key role that women play in shaping organizations, communities, and the next generation of amazing leaders. 

Sponsors for the 2017 series include Club 25, Jim Moran Institute, Jim Moran School of Entrepreneurship, Merrill Lynch, Prime Meridian Bank, and Thurman Law Firm.
