Strengthening High-Potential Women Leaders

The LEADForwardSM Roundtables program is the Orlando Economic Partnership’s newest leadership program. In partnership with Accendo Leadership Advisory Group, LEADForward is a transformative, yearlong, peer support group led by Accendo coaches who are accomplished C-suite female leaders and certified executive coaches.

Each cohort includes up to 18 women who meet 9 times over the course of the year for half-day, themed sessions. Participants also receive three individual coaching sessions.

During the group meetings, every member gets their turn in the Feed Forward Opportunity seat. The “Seat” is a positive way for each member to maximize and leverage the collective wisdom of the group to help solve a pressing issue.

The Fall 2024 Cohort is currently accepting applications. Cost to participate is $4,800.
