Program Audience

Who should attend?

Participants in the program come from natural resource agencies, tribes and NGOs from across the West with emphasis in the Pacific Northwest. Many participants are approaching mid-career, and have managed specific initiatives, sub-programs and projects.

Fresh insights and skills gained through the Executive Seminar Program help participants build their leadership portfolios and prepare for agency- and organization-wide leadership roles.  Past ESP alums have gone on to senior and regional leadership roles inlcuding agency directors, policy advisors and program managers.
