Corpus Christi Mayor Paulette M. Guajard joins more than 30 mayors from around the world to learn the latest management practices as part of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative.
Guajardo was one of the 38 mayors selected to participate in an intensive education program offered by Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School teachers, and experts in Bloomberg Philanthropy’s global network.
The mayor attends daily classroom sessions focused on the latest management and leadership practices, using case studies and workshops developed at Harvard.
“We are honored to be one of the 38 mayors from the four continents selected for this Bloomberg Harvard Leadership Initiative,” Guajardo said in a statement. “We look forward to learning from leaders at Bloomberg Philanthropy, Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School. We are confident that this global network will bring back Corpus Christi’s innovative solutions.”
Launched in 2017, the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative is a collaboration between Bloomberg Philanthropy, Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School, providing mayors and senior city leaders with the tools and expertise to effectively lead the city. The purpose is that.
The program started in New York City on Sunday.
Other Texas mayors of this year’s class include Brownsville’s Trainendez. Amarillo’s Ginger Nelson..
Guajardo became the 58th mayor of Corpus Christi in January after serving in the city council for four years.
As part of the program, two senior city officials appointed by each mayor will attend the meeting in October.
Guajardo’s Chief of Staff, Arlene Medrano, and Mayor Peter Zanoni will participate in the annual program to help Guajardo translate what he has learned into organizational change.
The program paid for tuition, accommodation, meals and travel for Guajardo and her senior leaders.
