Senator Cwodzinski Selected for Emerging Leaders Program
ST. PAUL, Minn — Senator Steve Cwodzinski (DFL-Eden Prairie) was selected to participate in the 2017 Emerging Leaders Program, sponsored by the State Legislative Leaders Foundation and the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia.
Held every year on the campus of the University of Virginia for a select group of state legislators, the program is designed to both inspire and educate our country’s freshman elected officials. The four-day program is happening now; from July 10-13.
“I am incredibly excited to learn and gain the skills to become the best senator that I can be. It is an honor to be selected, and I will soak up as much knowledge as I possibly can during these next four days,” Sen. Cwodzinski said.
Class discussions will examine qualities and characteristics of leadership including: ethical leadership, the art of compromise and coalition building, and the philosophical underpinnings of representative democracy. The discussions will be led by Professor Ed Freeman, the Elis and Signe Olsson Professor of Business Administration at the Darden School. Distinguished UVA faculty along with Dr. Thomas Little, Curriculum Director of the State Legislative Leaders Foundation, will join Dr. Freeman.
Sen. Cwodzinski is one of only fifty state legislators chosen from a nationwide pool of more than 200 outstanding nominees. To learn more about the program, visit: http://www.sllf.org/leadership-programs/emerging-leaders-program/
