For the past 23 years, CWLI has provided high quality professional development to hundreds of women seeking to improve their leadership capabilities. Formerly "Women Mentoring Women," the program has evolved to integrate learning and leadership in real time.
The new program will offer a combination of personal and professional development topics that will strengthen the skills and abilities of women and provide them with the tools to serve as effective mentors and leaders in the region. After participants work through a module, they will be paired with young women from Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy to present the material.
Game ChangeHer includes 16 bi-weekly sessions which run from September 2019 to May 2020. Participants will learn the skills needed to mentor and develop other women in community and business leadership roles while also participating in a journey of self-discovery.
The program is designed for women in ALL stages of life, whether you are new to the workforce or retired. Topics include but are not limited to: Generational Mentoring, Effective Listening & Communication, Expanding Leadership through Relations, Personal Branding and more.
Nominations will be accepted at the link below until May 31, 2019. Nominees will then be emailed an application which is due on June 28. Applications will be reviewed by the Game ChangeHer committee and final decisions will be emailed to applicants by July 12.
The cost of the program is $750 and scholarships are available. Key dates include Thursday, July 25 for CGLA mentor training and Friday, August 23 for a retreat and orientation. Classes and mentor sessions with CGLA students will be conducted on one Thursday and one Friday of each month beginning in September and ending in May 2020.
