SENATOR GLORIA TANNER
LEADERSHIP AND TRAINING INSTITUTE
FUTURE BLACK WOMEN LEADERS OF COLORADO
State Senator Gloria Tanner, after retiring from the State senate, stated that it is essential to the well being and growth of our community that there be a forum to encourage and prepare Black Women to serve as an essential part in the leadership of tomorrow.
In order to address this need, she established "The Senator Gloria Tanner Leadership and Training Institute for Future Black Women Leaders of Colorado" (FBWLOC). The purpose of this institute is to identify, prepare, educate and encourage Black Women to take on the challenges of leadership in the public and private sectors.
The institute is the first of its kind in Colorado, with the commitment to:
identify Black Women across the State and prepare them to run for elected office
to seek an appointment and/or advancement in the corporate/political arenas
properly equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to become statesmanlike leaders on issues of great importance to our families, economy and the community
Participants will be engaged in a year long program, which will include an orientation luncheon, leadership seminars and an intensive three days conference. The 2004 Future Black Women Leaders of Colorado graduates will serve as mentors.
Senator Tanner is enlisting the support of the Colorado community to identify Black Women who might benefit from participating in the institute. To apply institute candidates must:
