Regional Emerging Multicultural Leadership Experience (REMLE) Details

The Emerging Multicultural Leadership Experience (EMLE) is a learning experience designed to provide emerging professional staff of color the opportunity to become further engaged and connected to the Y Movement. Participants will become better positioned to grow and thrive at the Y by learning from and connecting with Multi-Team or Branch Leaders and Organizational leaders who are dedicated to educating and mentoring younger staff leading to a deeper engagement with the Y Movement.

The local/Regional EMLE – REMLE is typically a one-day experience, modeled after the three-day experience hosted by Y-USA Multicultural leadership Development. The one-day local experience will offer participants an opportunity to learn critical leadership skills at minimal expense, and will help young staff to further engage and connect to the movement. The one-day experience is led by a local planning team in partnership with Y-USA Multicultural Development.
