Urban Leadership Alliance Seminar (ULAS) Program Overview

ULAS is the premier leadership development program for large and medium-sized Louisville corporations seeking to accelerate the careers of high potential African American men and to successfully travel the pathway to senior leadership. Since 2013 Louisville companies such as LG&E/KU, UPS, Ford Motor Co., Anthem, Norton Healthcare, Horseshoe Southern Indiana, U of L Alumni Association, GE Appliances, First Capital Bank of Kentucky, AT&T, BB&T, KentuckyOne Health System, Kroger, Metro United Way, and Yum! Brands have chosen ULAS to accelerate the development of their African American male talent.

The nine monthly sessions are divided into three core areas: Personal Mastery, Relationship Mastery, and Business Mastery. Programming includes readings, film studies, dialogue, discussion and analysis, experiential exercises related to the workplace, and practical tools participants can use at work with their teams. ULAS offers participants the opportunity to self-initiate a mentoring/coaching relationship with an accomplished African American executive.

Companies may select one or two emerging high potentials to participate. The tuition is $4.750.00 per participant and includes all coaching, retreat expenses, reading materials, classroom and licensed materials. Participating companies share in the hosting of a meeting at a location of their choice which includes providing breakfast and lunch. Many companies choose to host at their worksite. The next ULAS session will begin in March 2017 and we highly encourage to register early as the class is limited to only 15 participants.

To deliver the highest quality of programming and proven learning approaches, the Louisville Urban League partners with SOAR, a leading provider of comprehensive leadership development programming with over 20 years of experience.
