DLI Executive Academy

The Delta Leadership Institute provides a year-long leadership development program, known as the Executive Academy, for regional leaders desiring to prepare themselves for the challenges of the 21st Century. The purpose of the Executive Academy is to prepare these leaders to collaborate regionally to lead change. Participants work in teams to solve “real-world” problems faced by regional leaders.

The Executive Academy consists of seven sessions held at various locations throughout the Delta region and Washington, DC, providing on-site case studies and learning as well as introducing participants to different states and communities within the Delta.
