Emerging Business Leaders

Charlotte Regional Business Alliance Emerging Business Leaders (EBL) is a talent development program designed to enhance the leadership capability of high-potential, diverse professionals who will ultimately create competitive advantage for Charlotte’s workforce and economy. The program facilitates relationship building across companies and industries, and provides opportunities for participants to increase their engagement with the Alliance. EBL supplements the talent development efforts of participating companies as a value-add. EBL companies get a return-on-investment through employees who are more competent and self-aware in terms of managing their careers and maximizing their value and overall contributions to their organizations.

Participation in Emerging Business Leaders is a special benefit for Alliance members who are Diversity & Talent Development Fund sponsors at the Platinum, and Silver levels.
