The Leadership announces Class of 2022

The Leadership on Tuesday announced the Class of 2022 for its Flagship Program. These 64 leaders will join the more than 1,800 alumni who have preceded them.

The Flagship Program is a nine-month experiential leadership program that develops participants in three areas:

  • Deepening their understanding of Baltimore’s history, challenges, assets, and people
  • Strengthening their capacity to lead, particularly in a civic context
  • Forging substantive relationships with fellow class members to provide a platform for collective action

To complement its nearly 40-year old Flagship Program, The Leadership created Leading Now, a portfolio of expanded offerings designed to help those leading through the transformational change unleashed by the events of the past several years.

The Leading Now Gateway program introduces a new leadership model for today’s reality, providing participants with cutting-edge skill frameworks and tools to drive creative problem solving and equitable, systemic change.

Leading Now Conversations, a series developed for The Leadership’s alumni, features a wide variety of guests sharing insights they’ve learned through their own experiences of leading.

Featured guests have included Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott, Morgan State University President Dr. David Wilson, American Visionary Art Museum Founding Director Rebecca Hoffberger, Fearless CEO Delali Dzirasa and Ceasefire co-founder and Baltimore Community Mediation Center Executive Director Erricka Bridgeford.
