EmpowerLA - Leadership Academy (Spring semester)
1. EmpowerLA Leadership Academy (Spring semester)
EmpowerLA Leadership Academy
The Spring semester of EmpowerLA's Leadership Academy goes on the road with a brand new roster of empowerment sessions designed for individual leaders and Neighborhood Councils.
Empower Yourself sessions are hands-on opportunities that feature topics such as Public Speaking, Social Media, Powerful Partnerships, Group Dynamics, Successful Advocacy, and Parliamentary Procedure. The tools and strategies presented in these sessions are designed for personal growth.
Empower Your Community sessions present tools and strategies for improving the effectiveness of Neighborhood Councils and include Advocacy Campaigns, Media Strategies, Outreach Tools, Neighborhood Networks, Communications, Wordpress Websites, Newsletter Strategies, and Managing Mailing Lists.
Empower LA sessions are hosted by General Manager (GM) BongHwan (BH) Kim and feature City Hall leaders at the GM's Roundtable. These are great opportunities for Neighborhood Councils to engage stakeholders in face-to-face sessions with the people responsible for running the City and delivering City Services.
