Emerging Leaders

The IEC Emerging Leaders Program

The IEC Emerging Leaders Program is a six-month leadership development experience for professionals in the electrical and systems contracting industry. Each year, six to ten individuals are selected to form a cohort class that participates in skills development workshops, networking opportunities, leadership exercises, and project development experiences.

Is the Program for You?

Being an “emerging leader” has nothing to do with age or job title. You may be an emerging leader without even knowing it, missing out on opportunities to fully liberate the leader within you. If you have the desire to develop important leadership skills and advance in your career, the IEC Emerging Leaders Program is for you!

Application Process

Applications for the 2024 cohort are now opened. The application process consists of your resume, small essays, a letter of recommendation, and a letter of support from your current employer. The program cost is $2,500. Submit an application below.
