LAWRENCE, MA–The LEADS Executive Leadership program has announced the participants in its newest cohort, which includes high impact leaders from Lawrence, Haverhill and Lowell.
The roughly 70 diverse, cross sectoral participants (see full listing at www.leadsma.org) will engage in a seven month fellowship program that is designed and delivered by Harvard Business School faculty and staff, and is meant to catalyze systems level change at the community and regional level. The program, which has been adapted due to Covid-19, is scheduled to kick off on August 5th with Brad Howell, President & CEO of Fidelity House CRC joining the Haverhill Cohort group.
Pam Hallagan, Director of Custom Executive Education at Harvard Business School (HBS) and Co-Founder and Executive Director of LEADS states, “LEADS programming is a powerful platform to connect impactful leaders within the Merrimack Valley as well as to other key change makers in Boston and across the state. We couldn’t be more impressed with the quality of this new cohort to carry this critical work forward.” LEADS represents a mechanism for investing in more inclusive leadership pipelines. The new cohort is majority female (52%) and majority people of color (57%), reflecting the communities that are the ultimate beneficiaries of this investment in the capacity, connectivity, and commitment of local and regional leaders
