Default Interior

University of Windsor Continuing Education will undertake a partnership with the Municipality of Leamington in the Applied Leadership Program beginning this fall.

The program offers participants the opportunity to make professional connections with industry leaders, and to hone leadership and soft skills through real-world challenges. Participants will be encouraged to inspire action in others by practicing hands-on tactics and acquiring the necessary skills to lead resilient teams to successful outcomes, culminating in an industry-sponsored capstone project.

“We are proud to partner with the University of Windsor to bring local level challenges, techniques and successes to the Applied Leadership Program,” said Peter Neufeld, Chief Administrative Officer for the Municipality of Leamington. “This partnership will also introduce participants to career opportunities within the municipal sector and showcase the Municipality of Leamington as a potential employer.”

“We are thrilled to have the Municipality of Leamington’s involvement as our industry partner for this program,” said Jennie Atkins, Executive Director of UWindsor Continuing Education. “Their partnership will provide program participants with valuable feedback and real-case scenarios that are crucial to the growth and learning of potential employees, and future leaders.”

The program is online and open for registration to current and aspiring managers, supervisors and industry leaders. The eight, half-day modules take place on Fridays, 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM, October 15 to December 3, 2021.
