Program Curriculum

Leadership Sunnyvale is pleased to announce its new 2021-2022 program!

We have a blended set of classes for you this session, including face-to-face and Zoom activities (should we see a resurgence of COVID variants, we will switch back to all online Zoom). 

The Curriculum days below are our required civic and leadership days.  This year in addition to the optional Strategic Workshop and Budget Workshop with City Council and City leaders, we are also adding public book events linked to our Leadership themes, a couple of optional workshops for our alumni and cohort, as well as convening a few Community Conversations, also optional for the cohort.  All are relevant to Community Leadership.  All will be available to you when you join the Sunnyvale Leadership Class of 2022!  Welcome to our world of Wicked Leadership...
