Leadership is made, not born. You can help develop our women leaders in Central Minnesota! The Women’s Leadership Fund, exists to accelerate the number, effectiveness, and impact of women in organizational leadership roles. We do this through our core program, the Women’s Executive Development Initiative (WEDI).
Although women make up a sizable portion of business owners or organizational leaders in Central Minnesota, few opportunities exist for these women to participate in a peer-to-peer development group to strengthen their leadership skills. WEDI supports and accelerates the strengths and skills of women currently holding organizational leadership positions throughout Central Minnesota. It breaks down community, industry and geographical silos and facilitates the learning and development of women leaders.
At the core of WEDI are the small groups, or cohorts, that serve as a peer advisory board for WEDI members. These cohorts will launch in 2018, and will create a space for executive women to further develop their skills and connections, and ultimately to better lead their organizations and contribute to the vitality of the region.
Thank you for helping make this a reality in Central Minnesota!
