This impressive group of women leaders are serving in a variety of professional roles across early learning, health and wellness. Through a highly intentional process, twenty candidates were selected to join the 2019 - 2020 cohort and 18 have committed to join the program.
We are grateful to the alumni and community partners who encouraged and supported all of the candidates to apply this year.
