Emerging Leaders Program at UMass Boston recruiting for executive leadership program

September 12, 2011

The Emerging Leaders Program at the Center for Collaborative Leadership, UMass Boston is recruiting fellows for the 2012 and 2103 cohorts.

Celebrating its tenth year, UMass Boston’s Emerging Leaders Program has established an executive leadership development course of study that engages individuals across sector, gender, race and ethnicity in an experiential collaborative, skill-building program.

The 10-month curriculum begins with a week-long seminar in January which features a lecture series with Carol Fulp, SVP of John Hancock; Gloria Larson, President of Bentley University; John Connors, Founder and CEO of Boathouse Group; Travis McCready, Executive Director of Kendall Square Association; José Massó of WBUR; and Robert Matthews, Vice Chairman, Citizens Bank.

This week is followed by monthly day-long sessions featuring dialogue with current leaders in business, government, health care and nonprofit sectors.

The program has four major components: leadership skills sessions with subject-matter experts, dialogue with Greater Boston’s current leaders, leadership style development, and team projects that address social and economic challenges that include ensuring affordable and equitably accessible housing, supporting low wage workers, and providing healthy activity for children to curb the obesity epidemic. 

Applications are being accepted now for both the 2012 and 2013 cohorts. Applicants should have demonstrated leadership ability and have 5-10 years of professional experience. Selection for the 2012 program begins on September 19th.  To apply for the program, go to:  www.leaders.umb.edu/index.php/leaders/application_form.
