Our graphic designer, Jenna Hutzler, was recently accepted into Leadership Buffalo’s Rising Leaders program! Applicants were interviewed and selected to take part in the program based on Leadership Buffalo’s four core values: Service, Inclusion, Diversity and Openness to Change.
Leadership Buffalo focuses on making Buffalo better. “Through collaborations, community awareness, and civic engagement, we are uniting leaders to take action. Our five programs are educating individuals and providing resources to make a difference. Participants explore the challenges, concepts, complexity and practice of leadership around important issues through a series of day sessions.”
The Rising Leaders program is specifically designed for individuals from corporations, small and entrepreneurial businesses, civic and community organizations and non-profits who have a few years of career experience under their belts.
The program begins on January 19th and runs through the duration of 2018. Each month, Rising Leaders focus on a different facet of the challenges and opportunities facing the Buffalo Niagara region. Homelessness, economic development, education and healthcare are just a few of the important topics the Rising Leaders will dive into this year.
We can’t wait to see what Jenna learns this year as a part of this prestigious organization. Parkway is also excited to discover new ways we can help make our city better as a team, guided by Jenna’s Leadership Buffalo experiences.
