Leadership Maryland, a professional development program pulling together senior-level executives from across the state, has included two Maryland Carey Law alumni among the 52 members of its Class of 2017:
“We send our congratulations to Rajiv and Jonathan for this well-deserved honor,” remarked Maryland Carey Law Dean Donald B. Tobin. “Whether through representation in law firms, implementing policy and legislative change, or working in private sector businesses, it’s always encouraging when our alumni are recognized for their leadership efforts. I look forward to seeing how each employs their experience with Leadership Maryland to improve our state and the legal community.”
Participants are chosen for their career accomplishments as well as their potential impact on critical social, economic, health, and environmental issues affecting Maryland as a whole, as well as their local communities and respective industries. The class is a cross-section of Maryland’s public and private leadership.
“The selection process for the Class of 2017 was very competitive this year, as we had an extraordinary pool of diverse and experienced applicants to choose from,” said Renée M. Winsky ‘05, president and Chief Executive Officer, Leadership Maryland, in a recent statement. “The 52 selected participants represent a diverse and broad spectrum of highly-qualified executives from across the state, and we are confident that their Leadership Maryland experience will help them to play an even greater role in our unified effort to shape the future of our state.”
The program begins in April and includes a series of hands-on learning sessions where participants will discuss Maryland’s most vital issues, while hearing from experts representing business, government, education, and the non-profit community.
