The Leadership Akron program begins in August with a tour and a spirited Opening Retreat. In the months that follow, the class is immersed in experiences that address specific aspects of our community. Each program day gives the Class a hands-on look at what is happening in that field; the opportunity to hear from leaders of organizations and the key issues they are addressing; and firsthand accounts from providers and customers.
Each day-long experience is designed by Leadership Akron alumni who have expertise in the field of interest for that day. In addition to each month’s day-long seminar, short site visits to unique locations provide a deeper understanding of the topic at hand. View the full brochure.
The Goal: Leaders Ready to Serve
Leadership Akron presents an unparalleled opportunity for leaders to see beyond their own spheres to the broader interests of community. They develop a working knowledge of our community across sectors, and learn to appreciate the diverse perspectives of their classmates. The result—a corps of leaders equipped to advance our community.
