Perhaps at no time in our history has local leadership been more important to our future. Local leaders need wider perspectives and deeper understanding of existing and emerging community issues, as well as tools for strengthening their own leadership abilities so they can effectively engage with the local, national and international challenges that impact daily life in Alexandria.
To provide a forum for engagement to a new generation and a path to social impact leadership, The Chamber ALX has partnered with Leadership Center for Excellence to relaunch Leadership Alexandria. With a new civic-based curriculum that draws heavily from the latest research on leadership development, participants will expand their impact on both their own organizations and the wider community.
Delivered virtually when necessary and in person when possible*, the new program will bring leaders throughout Alexandria to the table for dialogue with Leadership Alexandria participants. Participants will also experience a recognized leadership development program, supported with one-on-one leadership coaching, which delivers new insights for personal and professional growth.
Participants will explore topics including:
- Local and state government
- Economic development
- Arts and culture
- Health and human services
- Public safety and justice
- Education and workforce development
- Environmental sustainability
- Inclusive leadership and regionalism
