The ANCOR Foundation launched the Leadership Academy in 2017 to nurture emerging leaders who are building their careers in services and supports for people with disabilities. Over the course of two years, the Foundation provides training and mentoring opportunities to support mid-career professionals in cultivating their areas of expertise and thought-leadership to build influence and reputation in the national I/DD community as the next generation of leaders.
The Leadership Academy was instrumental in my professional growth and development. Not only did I gain knowledge in a variety of areas, I was able to connect with fellow ANCOR members, and I found a home for myself on ANCOR’s Government Relations Committee. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to develop leadership skills or kickstart their leadership journey. – Nikki Storebo, 2020 cohort
