Leadership America (http://www.leadershipamerica.com) is the premier national women's leadership organization that recognizes, educates, and connects accomplished women leaders from business, government, education, and non-profit arenas. Over the past 17 years, nearly 1,600 women leaders have participated in Leadership America's flagship program, the American Issues Forum, to increase their individual and collective impacts locally, nationally, and globally.
The American Issues Forum annually selects a diverse group of some up to 100 women leaders from across the nation for a yearlong, three-city program. In addition to DenverÂs first session, the Forum will also be held in Washington D.C., June 26-29, 2005, and Chicago, September 18-21, 2005. The Forum provides opportunities for rigorous discussions and in-depth analyses of the critical national and international issues of the day.
By year's end, participants have also established a lasting, diverse network of resources and contacts that they may call upon to support their professional and personal development well beyond their initial program experience. Alumnae are currently serving everywhere as successful leaders: as presidents, chief executives, and senior-level administrators; at private and public schools and universities; in governmental agencies at the local, state, and federal levels; in elected office and appointed positions; and within non-profit organizations and foundations nationwide. Many former participants are also entrepreneurs with interests in almost every field and endeavor.
