Last Day to Nominate Innovators, Challenge Seekers and Continual Learners
Friday, May 25, 2018on
Still mulling over who to nominate for our 2018 Leadership Wichita class? Three program graduates offer some insight into the qualities they look for when submitting nominations. Submit your nomination today on the Chamber's website. CONTINUAL LEARNERS Coleen Tabor, Talent and Diversity Director at Spirit AeroSystems, Inc. “I consider these qualifications when making my nominations: people who have demonstrated leadership capabilities by leading cross-functional teams both inside the company and in the community; people who show a strong commitment to continuous learning in both personal and professional realms and whose commitment is based in a humble understanding of their strengths and opportunities for growth; and people who have a desire to impact the region by building economic and cultural value for all community members.” CHALLENGE SEEKERS Matt Cortez, VP & Opportunities Studio Lead at GLMV Architecture “When submitting my nomination for the program, I look for the intangible qualities in a person that allow them to see opportunities in every difficulty (along with qualifications that show up on a resume). These individuals must have integrity, they must be visionaries and they also must have a substantial amount of grit to overcome challenges.” INNOVATORS Sheelu Surender, Director of Financial Aid and Scholarships at Wichita State University “The individuals I nominate have a passion and commitment for innovation and growth, both in their organizations and in our community. They are leaders who give of their time, talent and resources to advance the greater good. As they participate in the program and gain a greater understanding of the local environment, the perspective gained will be transformative.” Today is the last day to nominate our next group of 30 community changers who will participate in the 2018 Leadership Wichita class. This annual immersive experience is managed by the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce and the program runs between August 23 and November 14.
