Stellantis returns as industry partner in leadership program open to all

Continuing Education welcomes the return of Stellantis as industry project partner for the Applied Leadership Program, says executive director Jennie Atkins.

“Last year, they offered a distinct learning opportunity to our diverse learners from various educational and professional backgrounds,” she says.

The eight-week course is designed for current and aspiring leaders looking for opportunities to make professional connections, hone leadership and soft skills through teamwork, and develop communication strategies and leadership plans in support of an organizational strategy.

Classes will be held on Thursdays starting April 18 from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at Windsor Hall.

In extending this partnership, Continuing Education aims to sustain the momentum of delivering impactful learning experiences to learners in the community, says Atkins.

Key members of the Windsor Assembly Plant will provide a case scenario to participants, along with feedback on learners’ capstone presentations at the end of the program.

“We look forward to participating again in Continuing Education’s integral program,” says Jamie Marshall, master plan manager at Stellantis Windsor Assembly Plant. “Last spring’s capstone presentations left a lasting impression on our team, and we are excited about contributing to the development of a new cohort of current and future leaders, right in our community.”

UWindsor alumna Shanna Komsa completed the Applied Leadership Program and says it provided communication and self-assessment tools: “the program allowed me to see where my strengths are, as well as where there are opportunities for growth.”

The course is open for registration. Organizations are encouraged to send individuals requiring leadership training or identified as potential leaders.

Participants will receive a certificate on completion of the course.

UWindsor alumni, staff, students, and Hire UWindsor partners are eligible for discounts. Email to inquire. More information about the Applied Leadership Program can be found on the Continuing Education website.
