Directed by a Steering Committee, Educator Leadership begins in October with a total of 7 sessions held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in October, November, January, February, March, April and May. Each session focuses on a new industry with presentations by business leaders through lectures and discussions during on-site visits.
