2015-2016 Leadership Green Bay Program Information
Each year, the University sponsors up to two employees to participate in the Leadership Green Bay program. This program was established in 1983 by the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce and offers select individuals the unique opportunity to develop leadership skills while enhancing the well-being of the Green Bay area. Program goals include enhancing the participant’s knowledge of the Green Bay community; obtaining a greater awareness of issues that face the Green Bay area; enhancing leadership skills; and making an impact on the Green Bay Community.
Participants meet one day per month, October through May, following a two-day overnight retreat in September. Programs focus on Green Bay’s local economy, education, local history and heritage, diversity and cultural awareness, human services, government, and environment. In addition, small groups work on projects designed to enhance awareness of community problems, identify systems and methods to effect change, and develop their project management, team, and presentation skills. The groups meet on their own time outside Leadership Green Bay sessions.
To learn more about Leadership Green Bay, please consider attending the following session, which will feature an informational presentation by Tom Lyga, Director of Education and Leadership for the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce, as well as a panel of UW-Green Bay employees who have graduated from the Leadership Green Bay program:
