The Greater Memphis Chamber is pleased to announce the launch of the Memphis Workforce Leadership Academy for 2023-2024.
The Workforce Leadership Academy brings leaders from across the Greater Memphis workforce ecosystem together for a year-long series of retreats, workshops, and action learning projects. It’s a forum for local leaders to work together to identify local and regional systems-based challenges and create shared solutions for economic opportunity for all. Fellows work with leading practitioners throughout the country as they deepen networks; strengthen systems leadership skills; apply race, equity, and systems change frameworks to their work; and increase understanding of effective strategies and programs.
Alumni of the Academy become part of the Aspen Institute’s Economic Opportunity Fellows Network, joining Fellows from fourteen previous Academies in eleven cities in the US and Canada.
