Educating and inspiring women leaders to make a difference for over 30 years.
Our 2019 Greater Missouri Leadership Challenge class includes 40 women from throughout our state. The class includes the Chief Information Officer for a multi-state bank holding company, a Dean for Undergraduate Studies at MU, a Senior Change Manager for Missouri corporations, the Education Advisor for the KC Mayor’s Office, a Manager of Technology Services for a major utility company, the director of services for an Agricultural Lender for a Missouri banking company, the Director of Publicity for a Missouri entertainment property, a Life-Balance Manager for a nationwide mortgage lender to veterans, the Head of Seed Production Strategy for a major international corporation, an HR Director for one of Missouri’s largest employers, leaders from universities in Missouri, a Director of Underwriting for one of Missouri’s largest insurance firms, executive directors of non-profit organizations, owners of small business and farming operations, 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 2018 sessions were rated exceptionally high by our Challengers, with overall ratings for the year of 4.63 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 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, and keeps an active pipeline of outstanding applicants.
Another goal for Greater Missouri Leadership Foundation is to increase the return on investment for organizations that have empowered their women leaders to take The Challenge. We continue our emphasis on LEADERSHIP by utilizing a Strengths-Based Leadership component in GMLC.
