Today the Center has grown to include men, families, young adults and children among those it serves, but its mission remains the same. The mission of the Center is to be a vital community resource, providing excellent mental health counseling, support and education to people in the metropolitan area, regardless of their ability to pay for these services, helping them live healthy, stable and productive lives. Serving over 4,000 people between its two locations, the Center collaborates with nonprofits, government and business to expand the conversation of wellness including mental health. Join us this week for an exciting conversation with Shirley Clark, CEO and Executive Director of the Women’s Center, to learn more about her journey and the difference The Women’s Center is making in the lives of thousands.

Georgetown ITL Faculty

The faculty of the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University are multifaceted and diverse with respect to academic training, practical experience, expertise, and research interests. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the faculty is the community they have cultivated and the dialog they have advanced around leadership development and leadership coaching. Most of the original faculty members – those who helped establish Georgetown University’s leadership coaching program in 2000 – still teach and provide direction for leadership coaches and executive leaders, while new perspectives continue to evolve and inform our programs.

At the Institute for Transformational Leadership at Georgetown University, the faculty are exploring new transformative models of leadership, work, and change that can transform individuals, organizations, communities, governments and the global society. Join them each week for exciting conversations about transformational leadership.
