12 May Developing Leaders
One of the cornerstones of the Junior League of Norman’s mission is developing the potential of women through a variety of formal training. Our goal is to build on members’ strengths, and empower them to be more effective in their community, professional and personal endeavors.
Training: A Two-Part Approach
As part of our mission, we are dedicated to developing leadership skills. Our volunteers learn through a two-part approach; both through participation in inventive, hands-on training programs as well as a trainings with a variety of renowned and expert guest speakers.
A member’s placement on various committees is where she gains hands-on training. Whether that focus is on marketing, fund development, finance or event planning, the skills developed ‘on the job’ are transferrable to other volunteer opportunities, as well as members’ professional lives.

Our members receive formal instruction where expert guest speakers cover a variety of topics such as non-profit board management, strategic planning, advocacy, women’s personal and professional development, project management and networking.
