Leadership Whitley County program


The Leadership Whitley County (LWC) program has helped develop more than 400 diverse leaders in the community since 2001. When we grow, attract and retain servant leaders in our community, who care about and invest in something greater than themselves, new ideas are born, business improves and community satisfaction increases.

LWC is a seven month experiential learning program designed to empower individuals to serve and become better leaders, engage individuals in the workplace and community, and connect them with resources to continue growing as a leader at home, in the workplace and in the community.

During the fall of 2015, LWC became a program of the Whitley EDC. Through this partnership, the Whitley EDC and LWC program can combine skills and resources to help attract and develop talented individuals that excel in the workplace, and serve our community.

The Whitley County EDC has changed its structure and moved to a collaborative approach allowing our alumni to engage and help lead the program. We have created a Program Advisory Council (PAC) to drive curriculum and choose class speakers and an Alumni Engagement Council to oversee alumni participation and collaboration. Applications are currently closed for the committees.

Applications are due June 30, 2021, for Class 21, which begins September 2021.
