Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute Recognizes 2021 Community Leadership Program Graduates


May 10, 2021 (Des Moines, Iowa) – The Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute announces the graduation of 24 leaders from the private, public, and non-profit sectors who participated in the Leadership Institute’s Community Leadership Program. The nine-month course raised awareness of the needs and challenges that affect the region and built leadership skills to help participants become better community stewards.

Class members put their leadership training into practice through a class project that used design thinking to address the challenge of increasing the number of Black people who own homes in Greater Des Moines. This issue was identified by experts in various organizations who are connected to Capital Crossroads, which is a foundational component of the program curriculum. Class members will share their class project results at their graduation event on May 12th.
