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.
Update! We are not quite finished revising the curriculum for the upcoming Leadership Academy, but wanted to provide you all an update on our progress! We are excited to add Melissa Franklin, with Rita Sever, to address and incorporate racial equity and social justice issues into our 12 month training. We expect to have information and revised application out by the beginning of February, and hope to begin the new class in the spring. If you applied for the 2020 Leadership Academy, you do not need to apply again.
Thank you for your patience and happy holidays! Looking forward to 2021…
Congratulations to the 2020 Leadership Academy Cohort!
