Introducing a New YPW Program

The YPW Leadership Academy

Heather Bohrer

YPW Leadership Academy is a leadership development program targeted at YPW members who are interested in growing their leadership capabilities. The course offers both professional development and community connections providing opportunities to advance in your career and in the community. Six bi-weekly sessions feature interactive exercises, issue exploration, self-assessments and in-depth conversations with Wichita’s top community and business leaders.

YPW Leadership Academy will educate YPW members on their personal styles, values and strengths so they can grow as leaders, motivate others and impact change in their organizations and communities. It works to expand your leadership, career and life skills. The program begins with taking a closer look at your personal leadership style and then guides you in how to expand and utilize those skills via techniques to further your career.

If you are interested in nominating yourself or someone else for the YPW Leadership Academy, please email the YPW Director, Heather Denker, at
