Leaders United is the most impactful leadership development program I’ve participated in. It carefully mixes academic and experiential learning and brings together a wide mix of talent from organizations around the Twin Cities that would not normally mix. This provides a rich opportunity to leverage diverse experiences and insights.

I’ve used the sessions and their content as an impetus for conversations with coworkers that I may not have otherwise had…conversations about race, culture, authenticity and vulnerability. These are such important conversations for building trust and understanding.

I really enjoyed the cultural competence session. One thing I don’t think people do enough of is self-reflection, and that session really got me thinking differently about myself and how I view others.

The curriculum and facilitated learning covers a broad range of topics and provides action-based learning tools. We have already realized success in my organization at U.S. Bank by integrating both concepts and specific materials from the Leaders United program. The hands-on problem-solving for the agency partners provides immediate opportunities to put new skills and learning to work.

The learnings and leadership they bring back to their company will be invaluable in promoting a more inclusive environment and helping advance diversity initiatives. Leaders United gives participants an opportunity to develop connections with other young leaders throughout the Twin Cities community and gives them firsthand exposure to local nonprofits. Giving young leaders the chance to embed themselves in the local community and become philanthropic leaders helps advance the corporate citizenship of the companies they work for.

The differentiator for me when it comes to Leaders United is the community involvement. Instead of just reading about disparities, they are assigned projects with local nonprofits and get to see the challenges facing our community firsthand. That’s when the magic happens.
