Target demographics: Established and emerging leaders from the for-profit, non-profit and public sectors.
Geographic areas served: Southwestern Pennsylvania
The flagship, highly selective program geared towards established leaders and key decision makers in the community is designed like a hands-on MBA in community leadership. The twelve day curriculum distributed over a ten-month period examines critical community issues (such as education, regional economy, inclusion, human services, local government and the arts), enhances civic-engagement, develops executive-level networks and empowers senior managers to impact their business and the regional agenda at the leadership level. From September through June, the monthly Leadership Pittsburgh programs provide participants the exposure, experiences and connections that prepare them to tackle the challenges of senior leadership in our community.
A vital, strong and thriving Southwestern Pennsylvania is intricately linked with the cultivation of a talented, engaged, informed and connected pool of emerging and established leaders from across all sectors of our community. These leaders who have access to information and each other; understand the region’s critical issues; are willing to activate their spheres of influence, invest their time and talents to serve AND lead in order to strengthen the quality of life here for all.
