We could provide a long list of proven reasons why the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities’ Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) is beyond beneficial for executives and senior-level managers; however, the inherent value can simply be broken down to three areas: Learning, Return on Investment, and Networking.

In fact, if you talk to any of our graduates, we’re confident he or she can tell you firsthand how significant this experience is and how it continues to provide value. Listen to our mini podcasts to hear directly from our graduates and find out how attending ELI became a transformational experience.

We interviewed:

  • John Lydon, CEO of Auberle in McKeesport, Pennsylvania
  • Oriana Carey, CEO of the Coalition for Children, Youth, and Families in Milwaukee
  • Adair Mosley, president and CEO of Pillsbury United Communities in Minneapolis
  • David Wallace, executive director of LaSalle School in Albany, New York
  • Ron Clewer, COO of the Alliance

This year’s institute continues to provide these opportunities in partnership with the University of Michigan School of Social Work and Ross School of Business. The curriculum is challenging while also allowing each participant to focus on what he or she can do to achieve positive and impactful change within their communities. Speakers include a wide variety of faculty from nonprofit and for-profit sectors as well as academia. And of course, the program specifically provides networking opportunities that allow participants to share experiences and learn from each other.

ELI features 64 hours of content, culminating in the presentation of projects before participants and faculty. But this isn’t where the investment ends. We’ve learned from graduates that once they return to their organizations and the communities they serve, the lessons learned, ideas shared, and friendships made empower them personally and professionally. The result is seen and felt by co-workers and the organizations’ communities.
