Leadership Program Opportunities

Emerging Leaders Program (ELP)

The ELP identifies, cultivates and mentors young leaders in three areas of leadership: the firm, the profession and our community. Going into its 12th year, the Emerging Leaders Program boasts more than 250 graduates and draws rave reviews through its curriculum that combines leadership discussions led by Pete DeLisle, PhD, Hon. TxA, class-developed panels, and a class project benefiting the greater community. Past community projects undertaken by the Emerging Leaders include the design of a playground for CityWalk@Akard, the design of the Promise House Street Outreach shelter, the site plan of Bonton Farms and design of its Community Center, a children's playground at Fair Park, a columbarium at CitySquare, and a facilities and site plan for Dallas Pets Alive. Click here to hear from graduates of the program.

Applications for the 2021 Emerging Leaders Program are being accepted until noon on Monday, December 14, 2020.


Advanced Leadership Program (ALP)

The ALP, the next step after Emerging Leaders, addresses topics such as leadership effectiveness, influencing in complex environments, conflict management, and decision-making. This program is designed for project and program managers and will help navigate the road to elevated leadership roles. Through engagement in the program, you will develop a personal leadership development plan to directly address individual and group needs and substantially impact your organization. 

Applications for the 2021 Advanced Leadership Program are being accepted until noon on Monday, December 14, 2020.
