Further to your article of April 8: Doors opening for new leaders, The Leadership Centre of Central Alberta had the privilege of partnering with Central Alberta Immigrant Women’s Association to facilitate this training event for newcomers to Canada.

It was an opportunity for The Leadership Centre to contribute to the skill development of these individuals who are making Canada home. The enthusiastic response and willingness to learn was really encouraging and was a reminder to all of us that there is tremendous leadership potential within our community of newcomers.

The Leadership Centre is striving to become a centre of excellence for Central Alberta. The centre is a not for profit organization that offers a comprehensive leadership training program called Leadership Networks.

As of June of this year, Leadership Networks will have 127 alumni who continue to demonstrate leadership in our community. This program attracts new and emerging leaders from the private, public and not for profit sector who come together to learn new skills that build individual, organizational and community capacity.

As an organization it is timely that The Leadership Centre start building a broader community of leaders. The training session with CAIWA demonstrates that there is the potential for new partnerships across sectors that will strengthen the leadership capacity in our region.

To learn more about our organization, please call 403-340-0324.
