Leadership Atlanta names 83 to 2016 class
By Maria Saporta
Leadership Atlanta has selected another high-level group of people to be part of its upcoming 2016 class – with 83 leaders from education, law, business, religion, nonprofits, technology, media, healthcare, politics and government.
The all share a common desire – to move Atlanta forward by delving into some of the city’s thorniest issues.
“We are thrilled to welcome one of our largest, most diverse classes ever,” said Pat Upshaw-Monteith, Leadership Atlanta’s president and CEO. “We are proud to continue Leadership Atlanta’s tradition of bringing together the region’s most influential, engaged and creative leaders dedicated to working together for the greater good.”
The 2016 class will learn more about the region during the nine-month program, which will include retreats, full-day seminars, service projects, discussion groups and community tours. The goal is for them to find ways to become more effective leaders and build relationships of trust and understanding with each other.
