Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale CEO participates in Inaugural Leadership Summit

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Dr. Lisa Hurst, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale, is one of just 60 senior leaders from the Boys & Girls Club Movement who have been selected to participate in a new year-long leadership development program called the Leadership Summit. The program begins this month and will include a collaborative educational experience designed by Harvard Business School Executive Education and Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA).

To drive transformational impact nationally and on a local level, BGCA teamed up with the preeminent leadership development institution in the world, Harvard Business School. Together the organizations established a leadership development experience designed to supercharge the capabilities of local CEOs, raise the organization’s collective leadership abilities and solve the most pressing challenges facing Clubs today.

“It is an honor to have been chosen as an inaugural participant in the BGCA Leadership Summit Program, and to have the opportunity to join my colleagues at Harvard Business School,” said Dr. Hurst. “This is a rare opportunity to deepen our impact locally and nationally by learning from an establishment with a legacy of prestige and success.”

The extremely selective program is designed for high performing Boys & Girls Club organizations. Participants will undergo an intense experience designed to solve organizational-wide challenges and to reach goals. After the session, the group will work together to implement strategies discussed.

The Harvard Business School component will take place on its campus in June 2017.
