JASPER — Seven emerging women leaders representing five Southwest Indiana companies recently completed the immersive nine-month SOAR leadership development program designed specifically to accelerate more women to senior leadership positions in the workplace.

Over the course of the program, participants met virtually each month, led by SOAR-certified facilitator, Maryanne Elliott, building their capacity in three domains of leadership: Professional/Personal Mastery, Business Mastery and Relationship Mastery.
