LEAD Program


WQA’s Leadership Engagement And Development (LEAD) program develops advanced leadership skills while forging deeper engagement and participation within the WQA and broader industry. In three years, the impact of RISE, THRIVE, and WIN has spread to provide tangible solutions to members, including young professionals and women in the industry, to build their networks by harnessing the power of networking, mentoring and education. To help LEAD grow, we need your support.
