Our 2017 GMLC class includes the director of government and community relations for a metropolitan health care system, a chief financial officer for a major Missouri employer, the executive director for a large non-profit, a chief of staff for a major utility company, the chief operating officer for a public policy institute, the senior manager for a public career center, the global finance lead for a major international corporation, a financial planning analyst for one of Missouri’s largest employers, a dean of a state university, a college institutional compliance officer, directors of human resources, a public school educator, and several other significant Missouri women leaders. Wow! These women leaders are truly remarkable!
We continually seek to improve The Challenge experience based on feedback from current and former participants. Our 2016 sessions were rated exceptionally high by our Challengers, with overall ratings for the year of 4.52 out of 5.0 possible!
Operationally, the Board of Directors continually reviews our successes and any challenges we face, and helps set the course for the future of Greater Missouri Leadership Foundation. The new recruitment process launched by the Board in 2014 has helped us to better identify and reach out to exceptional female leaders from throughout Missouri as future GMLC applicants.
Another goal for Greater Missouri Leadership Foundation is to increase the return on investment for organizations who have empowered their women leaders to take The Challenge. We continue our emphasis on LEADERSHIP by utilizing a Strengths-Based Leadership component in GMLC.
