SUMMER LEADERSHIP INTENSIVE
What To Know
What is the Leadership Intensive?
The Summer Leadership is a two-day Intensive, held in Salt Lake City, Utah, where participants will garner skills in both business acumen and leadership through a series of keynote addresses, workshops, round table discussions, and activities.
Each young woman will be paired with a professional mentor from the Women's ALI Mentor Alliance. These are professionals that can help participants better understand how to navigate their specific field and leverage future educational and career opportunities. Scheduled mentor check-ins following the Leadership Intensive will be encouraged as we seek to foster meaningful professional connections for our program alumni.
Who can participate?
The 2020 Summer Leadership Intensive educational programs are designed specifically for young female artists, age 18-24. (High school graduates and undergraduates only.)
We seek to include women from all fields of the fine arts, including (but not limited to) music, dance, theatre, and visual arts. Diversity will be sought for and celebrated. The Intensive will be held the third week of August. (Exact dates will be announced shortly.)

Similar to athletes that must exercise a singular focus in order to obtain success, artists apply a focused dedication to develop their craft. The Women’s ALI Summer Leadership Intensive offers an attractive supplement to those hours of committed practice and is designed to help young women learn to navigate the business side of their career effectively.
Whether you intend to run a studio, move into administration, or utilize your artistic talents in another discipline, the skills you acquire at the Intensive will serve you at every career juncture and in daily life!
