That’s a Wrap

by | Dec 23, 2022 | General

Though I still haven’t wrapped one single gift yet (yes, I am a lifelong holiday procrastinator) I am very proud to proclaim 2022 a wrap. It’s our last week in the office before the holidays, which is always a time of reflection on the year.

Honestly, so much happened in 2022 that it feels like three years rolled into one! As I look back on what we have been able to accomplish with this small but mighty team, I could not be more proud. Here are just a few of the 2022 highlights:

More than 1,225 leaders attended our 2022 Momentum Leadership Conference. With 36 sessions, and three keynote speakers, topics ranged from career pathing to navigating change, to conflict resolution and leadership philosophy, to name a few.

20 women completed our first Momentum Leaders in Medicine at UAB program. This program is specifically designed to empower women in medicine through a 9-month leadership curriculum, mentoring opportunities, and networking at our state’s largest employer. Although women represent most of the US healthcare workforce, they only represent 25% of senior leadership positions.

Our executive program launched in Huntsville! We are thrilled to deliver on this important first step to take Momentum statewide. Our inaugural class of 16 is now halfway through their program year, and they are crushing it.

Mindy Santo coordinated 83 mentor matches in the past 12 months. This cost-free service for women in our communities (and beyond) addresses the “broken rung” in the ladder for women by giving them the network and mentorship from executive women who share their strengths and/or career paths.

Our Momentum team grew by two! Katie Hannah joined Momentum in May as our first full-time Director of Development, and Jaclynn Maxwell Hudson joined us part-time in June as our Operations Manager. Both hit the ground running on day one and are doing a great job adding to our momentum.

With so many new initiatives, it’s even more impressive how Andrea McCaskey, Tina Upshaw and Darla Morrison deliver an exceptional experience for our executive class 20, Upward class 4, and Men with Momentum participants.

As we look ahead to the New Year, don’t miss the free webinar on January 11th with Vitale Hardin, and be sure to put the March 23, 2023 Leadership breakfast on your calendar!

Wishing everyone a healthy, joyful, and restful holiday.
