Towson University announced that Emily Hartzell, Claims Supervisor at Harford Mutual Insurance Group, and Brigette Reed, Accounting Manager at Harford Mutual Insurance Group, completed the Professional Leadership Program for Women, a signature program of the Dr. Nancy Grasmick Leadership Institute. This professional development program is dedicated to expanding the positive impact of women leaders. The Dr. Nancy Grasmick Leadership Institute honored the thirty-two women who completed this program on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, at Towson University. This was the ninth cohort of the leadership program and a total of 223 women have matriculated from this program over the years.
This transformative program enables both professional and personal growth through cohort-based learning. During the four-month-long program, participants dedicate 1 day every two weeks, to gain new insights, added self-confidence, and the capacity to immediately impact their organizations and communities in powerful, positive ways.
This program is a trusted resource, used by many of Greater Baltimore’s leading organizations to develop rising female leaders and it attracts women from across industry, government, and nonprofit sectors serving in a wide array of capacities within their organizations.
“This program is incredibly unique and the women who participate are transformed throughout the process,” said executive director of The Dr. Nancy Grasmick Leadership Institute. “Their capacity for leadership and influence is expanded and continues to expand throughout their leadership journeys as a result of the skills and relationships that they develop.”
The program is open women who are committed to expanding the impact they contribute to their organizations and communities.
