The ChevronTexaco Management Institute (CTMI) is designed to help non-profit leaders to obtain the same resources for leadership excellence as their for-profit counterparts. ChevronTexaco has been providing CTMI support to the non-profit community since 1996. This is the second year for ChevronTexaco to offer the course to the National Urban League (NUL).

This year, 21 NUL affiliate CEOs from throughout the U.S. participated in an intense leadership development program covering such topics as strategic thinking, collaborative leadership, situational leadership, best practice strategies for NUL executives, and diversity and empowerment. The program also included use of a 360-feedback tool and one-to-one feedback sessions for each CEO.

CTMI-NUL got off to an exciting start with Frances Hesselbein, Founding President and Chairman of the Board of the Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Non-Profit Management, who dialogued with participants about "Leadership in a World that is Round." Other course faculty included Juana Bordas, President of Mestiza Leadership International, Dr. Karen Wilson-Starks, President of TRANSLEADERSHIP, INC. and Nadir Muwwakkil, President of Vision Group International.

"It is an honor and privilege to offer our leadership tools and expertise to serve community leaders. The National Urban League has the important mission of providing leadership in the African American Community for the objectives of quality education, economic self-reliance, and racial inclusion," said Dr. Wilson-Starks. "We applaud corporate citizens like ChevronTexaco who understand that corporate success extends beyond the walls of the corporation to include the entire community.
