Each year, the University sponsors one employee 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.
The cohort professionals gather once a month October through May (following an overnight retreat in September) to learn about social issues, challenges, and opportunities facing the Green Bay area, get exposure to relevant leadership education and skills, and become community stewards. Each monthly gathering has a specific focus (from local government to education to the economy), and learners are immersed in a full-day interactive lesson that includes guest speakers, team-building exercises, and networking. The program culminates by participants organizing into teams, identifying social or public opportunities, and working on community projects that are designed to raise awareness of an issue, improve team skills, and effect change. Past projects can be found here.
All UW-Green Bay employees are eligible to express interest in being considered. Supervisors are also encouraged to nominate employees for participation in this program. If nominating an employee, please notify this person to determine if they are willing to participate before submitting. After the deadline, one employee will be selected by institutional leadership, and will asked to complete the application materials representing UW-Green Bay.
In order to express interest in participation, or to nominate an employee, please complete the Interest Form. This form should be filled out and signed by the employee, their supervisor, and the Dean/Division Head (if applicable). Completed forms must be received in the Human Resources office by Friday, March 4, 2022 for full consideration.
