About the Program

This eight-month program was piloted in 2013, and our graduates have become such assets to the ODTUG community that we have fully dedicated ourselves to continuing this fantastic program. The ODTUG Leadership Program has covered such topics as leadership styles, women in technology, leading a user group, being an effective mentor/mentee, and work-life balance.
