Meet the graduates of WE Lead Class 7
WE Lead, sponsored by Fifth Third bank, graduated 53 women of Class 7 in June. WE Lead is the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber's leadership development program for women.
WE Lead offers professional coaching, practical learning experiences, mentoring, support and growth opportunities through a unique collaborative learning community. The 10-month program is designed to help women on established career paths prepare for further advancement.
"The 'secret sauce' that makes WE Lead so powerful is bringing together strong leaders from diverse backgrounds," said Diana Long, program manager for the Women Excel (WE) initiative at the Chamber. "Together they build lasting relationships, learning and supporting one another in reaching professional and personal goals. We’re proud of what the members of Class 7 have accomplished so far and are looking forward to what the future holds for them."
