Embark is a 4-month engagement that empowers high performing twenty-somethings (2-7 years into their careers) to grow as leaders and to build relationships as they prepare to make a difference in Memphis. Over eight evening sessions, Embark prepares young leaders to push forward in their careers while shaping the city for a better future. At the start of the program, all Embark participants take a personality assessment to help grow their self-awareness and effectiveness.
