Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute Announces Community Leadership Program Participants

Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement Manager, Elsie Rotich, selected for 2020 class.

DES MOINES, Iowa (August 15, 2019) – The fifty individuals selected for inclusion in the Community Leadership Program have been announced by the board of governors of the Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute.

Each individual selected was nominated and vetted in a lengthy and competitive selection process. Members of the 2020 class of leaders represent private, public, and non-profit sectors within the community.

Class members will spend the next nine months engaged in a curriculum that offers a view of Greater Des Moines from divergent vantage points, heightening their awareness of current conditions and challenges, enhancing individual and group leadership skills, and helping members of the class see themselves as partners for change.

The Community Leadership Program is made possible by generous support from Federal Home Loan Bank.

Congratulations Elsie, we are excited to have you as part of this civic leadership cohort! Click here to learn more about our Refugee Resettlement Program.
