Reasons to Participate

The NWA Leadership Academy is currently the only WIC-specific curriculum that specializes in leadership development. The WIC community is customer-centric and is firmly rooted in its mission. WIC succeeds when colleagues work creatively as a team in entrepreneurial ways to meet stakeholders’ needs.

The Academy is uniquely customized so that each is course is limited to a cohort of 25 students. Students will be working closely with their cohort, or group of like-minded individuals who are energized and poised to increase their knowledge, skills and competencies in an area that is critical for any organization to survive—leadership. The collaborative learning experience of a cohort provides students a forum to share and learn about best practices that they can directly apply to their own WIC settings.
