Chamber announces 2013 leadership classes

We are pleased to announce the selection of participants for two of the Chamber’s core 2013 leadership development programs: Boston’s Future Leaders and the Executive Leadership Institute. Participants in the third program, the Women’s Leadership Program, were announced in the fall. All three are part of the Chamber’s Leadership Initiative, which is designed to cultivate the business leaders of today and tomorrow.

The 2013 Boston’s Future Leaders program will include 84 of the region’s most talented, high-potential young professionals from the business, nonprofit, and government communities, while 42 of the region’s most senior business leaders will participate in this year’s Executive Leadership Institute.

“Greater Boston is the talent capital of the world,” said Paul Guzzi, President & CEO of the Greater Boston Chamber. “And because talent is a key driver of Massachusetts’ economic performance, it is critical that we develop and retain our workforce in order to grow our economy and improve our business competitiveness.”

The Boston’s Future Leaders program is presented in collaboration with Harvard Business School and Suffolk University’s Sawyer Business School. Participants will take part in a year-long program that includes sessions at both institutions, and will enjoy high-level networking opportunities with Chamber board members and the growing Boston’s Future Leaders alumni network.

The Executive Leadership Institute is presented in collaboration with MIT’s Sloan School of Management and the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business & Government at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. During this six-month program, participants will have the opportunity to interact with C-level peers in business and government, learn from world-class professors at MIT and Harvard, and deepen their knowledge of the economic and civic issues facing our region.  

All participants in the three Chamber Leadership Initiative programs were nominated by members of the Chamber’s Board of Directors and other senior executives from member companies.
