Tiffany Banning, Support Services Supervisor for the Sequim Police Department, graduated from the 3rd cohort of the Washington City/County Management Association’s (WCMA) Northwest Women’s Leadership Academy (NWWLA) on May 6.
The primary objective of the Academy is to prepare more women for leadership roles in local government. Currently women hold approximately one out of five top executive roles. Other objectives of the Academy include provide opportunities to enhance skills and competencies and build confidence; provide opportunities to expand professional connections and support network; and provide opportunities for women of diverse backgrounds and experiences to obtain the core skills necessary to move into local government leadership roles.
Banning along with 34 other leaders participated in a ten-month program that provided approximately 50 hours of instruction in strategic leadership and planning; finance, budget, and community engagement; communication, confidence, and orchestration; barrier busting + race, equity, and inclusion; and getting the job done.
“The NWWLA was an invaluable experience. Through it I developed relationships with amazing women, occupying various positions within a myriad of Washington government agencies, that will continue to nourish my personal and professional growth. I gained insight into city and department management that has facilitated immediate process improvement and fostered future project efficiencies. It is an opportunity that I would encourage any woman with promotion aspirations to participate in,” Banning said.
The NWWLA is currently recruiting for its fourth cohort which will begin in October. Learn more at https://sites.google.com/view/nwwla/home.
