Momentum is now accepting nominations for the 2018-2019 executive leadership class. If you would like to nominate an outstanding woman for consideration, please ask her to fill out the application and list you as the nominator. Applicants may also self-nominate.
Why consider Momentum? Because it’s a leadership development experience beyond compare! Momentum has developed a truly unique program to advance qualified women into leadership roles in their companies and communities. Each year at our opening retreat, we ask their thoughts about the program. Here are some common doubts that we hear:
- Can I really spare a full day every month for training?
- What if I get in and find out I’m not in the same league with the other participants?
- I’ve already done lots of leadership training; is there anything new here to learn?
- How will I benefit from learning from women when I work mostly with men?
To this we say women must dedicate time to professional development to be an exceptional leader. While is natural to have self-doubt, being surrounded with superstars who support you and help you to see your strengths will increase self confidence. We know there are lots of options for leadership development, but there’s only one prestigious program, right here in Alabama, that focuses on the unique challenges of women in senior management positions…and that’s Momentum. Not to mention that graduation one year later is just the beginning! Momentum has a very strong and active alumnae network who maintain their Momentum relationships and continue to advocate for professional women for the rest of their lives.
Each year we receive many more applications than we can accept. Our selection committee strives for a broad range of organizations from different industries, as well as individuals with varied roles, backgrounds, ethnicity, and experiences. Participants will be notified of acceptance in June and classes will begin in September. All deferred applicants are strongly encouraged to reapply.
