The deadline to apply for the Loyola University New Orleans and Councilmember Lesli Harris' Young Women’s Leadership Academy (YWLA) is quickly approaching.

Participants will work collaboratively to understand their personalities and leadership styles, define their career goals and build their professional networks with local women leaders, including many alumnae from Loyola’s 11-month Women’s Leadership Academy.

Additional program details can be found here. Applications are due Sunday, May 7.

Young Women’s Leadership Academy details:

This program builds on the success of the Women's Leadership Academy at Loyola. Launched in 2019, the Academy connects, educates and empowers leaders across Southeast Louisiana. Today it's New Orleans' premier women's leadership program and the only one of its kind run by a university in New Orleans.  The academy has graduated more than 165 women and paired them with some of the top female leaders and executives in the area in a 1:1 mentorship program. More than 30 percent have attained new jobs and promotions.
