.Thank you for your participation and welcome to an exciting year of growth.

The TAG Education Collaborative (TAG-Ed) presents our Pathways to Leadership (P2L) program; a means for providing participants with the best leadership development practices and necessary skills to continue and enhance their success in challenging environments. We will lead the future of technology by creating and developing new technology leaders.

Varied and valuable sessions are included in the program, allowing selected candidates with 3 to 10 years of leadership experience, and 1 to 2 years of management to gain further knowledge and guidance through their professional development.

Outcomes and Benefits

P2L provides a unique opportunity for ambitious young professionals to learn directly from industry experts and executives. For these future C-Suite professionals and TAG leaders, this program doubles as a valuable learning experience and a diverse networking opportunity. The graduating class of 2022 will have the necessary skills to not only succeed but thrive in their careers. The P2L program will be a resume builder and a professional branding opportunity upon the candidate’s completion of the program and the Zoo Atlanta community project.
