Gwinnett Young Professionals Leadership Institute Kicks Off Fall Class
YP Leadership Institute helps shape the local leaders of the future.
Gwinnett Young Professionals is pleased to announce its latest Leadership Institute class, which kicked off Tuesday, July 12.
The Gwinnett Young Professionals Leadership Institute is designed to be an interactive exploration of personal leadership development. Active learning on the part of each individual is an essential component of this valuable experience and it involves more than just attending the Leadership Institute – it also requires participants to engage in critical reflection of readings and discussions, formulate individual perspectives on the issues raised in the Institute and actively participate in the exchange of ideas with other young professionals.
“By 2020, millennials will comprise 50 percent of the United States workforce,” said Sean George, manager of membership services at the Gwinnett Chamber and Gwinnett Young Professionals program manager. “To accommodate this workforce shift, the Leadership Institute was created.”
In partnership with Georgia Gwinnett College as well as supporting partner Porter Keadle Moore, the program features monthly gatherings and lectures at various locations around Gwinnett County and will conclude with a commencement ceremony in December.
“Gwinnett Young Professional Leadership Institute was a very well planned and insightful six-month experience,” said Tabitha Spillers, Finance Manager with Precision Planning, Inc., and Spring 2016 graduate. “Through open dialogue of leadership theories, I learned how to effectively apply my skills to grow as a leader and manager. I am thankful for the new friendships and business connections gained, whom I can continue to learn from and lean on throughout my career.”
