The Center for Collaborative Leadership has been fortunate for the last eleven years to work intensely with a talented group of young professionals whom we call “emerging leaders.” Some 457 of them have participated in the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP). To date, six Senior Fellows have been named to the Governor’s administration and approximately 33% of our alumni serve on boards of directors or boards of advisors. At least 40% of the participants have reported promotions in their positions. With eleven years behind us, we have seen the ELP Alumni take on leadership positions of increasing responsibility in the organizations and communities and have become true civic leaders in the Greater Boston region. For the Emerging Leaders alumni, service and leadership go hand in hand. Leaders apply their skills to help their community and in doing so strengthen their own leadership abilities.
