NEW ORLEANS — The Women’s Leadership Academy at Loyola University New Orleans is accepting applications for its fifth cohort.

Launched in 2019, the program aims to “educate, empower, and elevate leaders across southeast Louisiana.” Since its inaugural year, more than 165 participants have networked with thought leaders in the region. 

“The pandemic has shown us that people want more from the workplace,” said Amy Landry, program manager. “The Women’s Leadership Academy empowers women to identify and hone their individual strengths – and become the kind of leaders they aspire to be.”

“We are in a new world of work that requires a new type of leader, one who can meaningfully connect with themselves, with their teams and with their organizations. This new type of leader will have to demonstrate authenticity, compassion and alignment,” said Michelle K. Johnston, Loyola’s Gaston Chair of Business and author of “The Seismic Shift in Leadership: How to Thrive in the New Era of Connection.”

The academy meets all day one Thursday per month for eleven months, starting March 30. The deadline to apply is March 1.
