WIC Leadership Academy

California has many new local agency directors, young professionals and state staff. Opportunities to develop and sharpen leadership skills are vital to their current positions as well as career success and advancement. With the many upcoming changes and new challenges in WIC and public health, professionals in leadership positions need a toolbox of skills for effective communications and decision making.

We are excited to announce the revamped WIC Leadership Academy program for 2021! After enduring an unprecedented year of challenges and immediate urgent needs, we are pleased to share a revised program of leadership development, with the conscious inclusion of equity, with a commitment to anti-racist awareness, culture, and practices. CWA will be working again with management consultant and author Rita Sever; we are thrilled to add trainer Melissa Franklin, a management and communications consultant with specific focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Rita and Melissa have planned and will implement this year-long training, personal growth and skills development process.
