Leadership Portland broadens awareness on critical issues, builds civic leaders
Today, the Portland Metro Chamber announced the participants of its 2023-2024 Leadership Portland class. The 45 participants represent a cross section of unique, talented, and highly qualified professional leaders from Portland’s business and nonprofit communities.
“Leadership Program is a remarkable opportunity for professionals to deepen their understanding of our region and become catalysts for positive change,” said Kyle Baisch, SVP and Portland Market President at Oregon Pacific Bank, Leadership Portland Alumni Association Chair, and 2015 class participant. “We’re excited to welcome yet another fantastic cohort of professionals into the program this year. This is truly an amazing group of people.”
Leadership Portland is designed to immerse participants in the issues, challenges, and opportunities driving the future of the Rose City. The program’s curated syllabus is designed to increase awareness of how business, government and community sectors work together to achieve common goals, and to develop advanced skills in team management, critical and creative thinking, and problem-solving.
Each year, Leadership Portland participants are selected based on a set of criteria, including a demonstrated commitment to the community along with a wide variety of skills and interests. Since 2003, nearly 700 local professionals have participated in the Portland Metro Chamber Leadership Portland program.
