Applications are being accepted for the 25th annual class of Leadership Hayward, to begin in November 2015. With 276 graduates since 1991, this accredited program develops leaders knowledgeable about the greater Hayward area and prepared to address complex social and economic issues. The program is particularly valuable to representatives of organizations and the business community, who learn about Hayward's economic development to enhance their own professional growth.
Leadership Hayward features eight monthly one-day sessions from November through June. Each session will focus on a general topic presented by experts. Participants receive professional development credit from the department of University Extension of California State University, East Bay. The June graduation luncheon coincides with the mayor's State of the City address and is attended by local and state elected officials and other dignitaries. About 20 individuals participate each year representing a cross section of Hayward's diverse private and public sectors, cultures and age groups.
Participants have included bankers, retailers, restaurant managers, teachers, professors, police officers, firefighters, medical personnel, nonprofit staff, city employees, and a host of business persons.
