CLT Alliance Emerging Business Leaders Class 8 Graduates

The CLT Alliance Emerging Business Leaders is a talent development program designed to enhance the leadership capability of high-potential, diverse professionals. Our latest cohort, fondly regarding as “EBL Class 8” consisted of 55 participants, representing a myriad of organizations in the Charlotte region that invested in our Diversity and Talent Development Fund.

Due to COVID-19,  with the exception of orientation and their first full session, EBL Class 8 experienced all sessions, virtually.  In those sessions, participants engaged in conversations in intentional and agile leadership, participated in a design thinking activities that included interaction with community leaders, and also included a timely conversation on diversity and inclusion. The final session was aptly titled “Executive Chat” in which executive leaders in the community shared their leadership journey along with core competencies needed for leadership success.

We want to thank the many EBL sponsoring organizations for selecting such talented individuals to participate in this year’s cohort.  And to EBL Class 8, thank you for your resilience, presence, patience, active participation.  CONGRATULATIONS!
