The United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra (UWNNS) announced recently that President/CEO Michael Brazier has been selected to participate in United Way Worldwide's Executive Leadership Development Program.

The program is an “accelerated months-long development course designed for exemplary United Way CEOs, presidents and executive directors who are leading United Ways that are high-performing and advancing the mission in their local communities,” according to a July 29 press release.

"We are pleased that Michael Brazier is among the best and brightest in our United Way network,” Larry Harvey, chair of the board of UWNNS, said in a statement. “Leaders like Michael will engage with the next generation of donors and carry our mission into the 21st century as we accomplish our mission of uniting communities to improve lives, so all northern Nevadans have an opportunity to thrive."

Selection for the program — limited to 30 applicants each year — is based on an individual's performance and that of their United Way, “along with their mastery of skills and potential for leadership within the global United Way Network,” according to the press release.

Applications come from the nearly 13,000 people leading local United Ways around the world.
