Congratulations to our CEO, Lisa Williams-Taylor, who has been accepted into the 2019-2020 class of Leadership Florida Cornerstone.

Leadership Florida is a statewide organization dedicated to bringing together emerging and existing leaders from across the state to challenge, prepare and inspire them to build a better Florida. By providing meaningful forums and creating unique opportunities, members are introduced to fresh transformative ideas and information, which allow them to enhance and recharge their leadership skills. The goal is to activate, educate and engage leaders of today and tomorrow through top-level programming and development.

For the last 37 years, between 40 and 70 leaders have been chosen annually to participate in Cornerstone, a stimulating and thought-provoking nine-month educational program that consists of five two and three-day sessions held in cities throughout the state. These sessions include programming on issues critical to Florida, leadership skills assessment and training, and relevant information on Florida's history, demography, diversities and opportunities. One of the most exciting elements of the Cornerstone program is the chance to spend valuable time interacting with other leaders from a variety of professions, philosophies and parts of the state who represent Florida's diverse ethnic and racial composition.

“I’m thrilled to participate in this enlightening program and look forward to learning even more about the issues facing Florida, all while engaging with leaders from across the state,” Dr. Williams-Taylor said.

Dr. Williams-Taylor is one of six from our region chosen for this year's class, including Palm Beach County Mayor Mack Bernard, and one of 55 across the state. This year's Cornerstone Class 38 includes law enforcement officials, city managers, museum directors, members of Congress and CEOs of private businesses and nonprofits.
