Executive Leadership Academy at Carnegie Mellon University

The Executive Leadership Academy, a signature program of The Advanced Leadership Initiative in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University announced its inaugural cohort of 24 individuals in January 2019. The Advanced Leadership Initiative is a new initiative for the Pittsburgh region whose mission is to address corporate diversity by investing in African American executive talent.

Carnegie Mellon serves as The Advanced Leadership Initiative’s Academic Partner for the Executive Leadership Academy, an eight-month executive education program.  The Initiative is designed to provide the tools, exposure and training necessary to increase the visibility and success of high-performing African-Americans in the Pittsburgh community.  Members of the cohort will use the world class executive education program at Carnegie Mellon to make greater positive impact in their chosen fields.

Farrell Group is honored to participate as one of several Executive Coaching partners with Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business in the initiative.  For more information on the Executive Leadership Academy, go to www.cmu.edu/tepper.
