An Executive Leadership Development Program for Leaders of the City of Lawrence.
Hosted by Harvard Business School.
Themes and Program Content
The Lawrence Leads program invests in a cohort of Lawrence leaders as a key strategy of investment in the city of Lawrence and its future. Through classroom and field learning, the program combines the academic rigor of a Harvard Business School course with experiential learning opportunities in Lawrence and Boston. The core content helps participants develop skills to better position their businesses and organizations for growth and develops leaders with increased capacity for social and corporate responsibility who can assume greater leadership at the community level. The development of a network—within the cohort, as well as with other key leaders in the Lawrence and Boston business and civic communities—will further the ability of program participants to effect change.
The themes of Economic Opportunity and Civic Engagement/Responsibility run through each module of the program. Participants are asked to apply what they learn to their own organizations and on cross-sector project teams to address some of our community’s most challenging economic and social issues.
