Leadership United kicks off with opening retreat

The 2013-2014 Leadership United program got off to a great start with the opening retreat on September 20, 2013 at Camp Belzer.

The relaxed atmosphere gave new class members an opportunity to participate in networking exercises, explore biases in our culture and gain knowledge of the mission and priorities of United Way.

Class members were introduced to their moderators. This year’s moderators (pictured to the right) include:

  • David Resnick, Katz, Sapper & Miller, moderates the Ardath Burkhart Series
  • Juan Gonzalez, Key Bank, moderates the Diversity Leadership Series
  • Rosemary Dorsa, Indiana Grantmakers Alliance, moderates the Executive Women’s Leadership Series
  • Rafael Sanchez, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP, moderates the Generation Now Series
