About the Program

The Emerging Leaders Program supports Black professionals with higher level aspirations who are currently individual contributors or managers of people. 

This series will hone the skills new leaders need to move into higher levels of management, successfully navigate challenges they may encounter as leaders of color, and ensure their strategic rise up the organizational ladder. 

This 12-session program is presented by The Advanced Leadership Institute in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University and in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh, Robert Morris University, and Duquesne University. Participants will sharpen the hard and soft skills necessary for effective leadership within the context of the rising Black professional. Participants will master topics such as executive presence and managerial effectiveness, organizational culture, negotiation strategy, mentorship and feedback, and building successful teams – all while addressing relevant potential roadblocks and how to surmount them.
