Emerging Leaders Alliance Program
The Emerging Leaders Alliance (ELA) Program is a unique leadership development program for scientists and engineers. Early-career professionals on track for leadership roles or upper-level management positions in their organizations can strengthen their nontechnical skills in a setting that allows them to interact across disciplines and obtain foundational, executive-level knowledge, while weaving themes of social responsibility and environmental stewardship throughout the training curriculum.
The ELA is a multi-professional society initiative in which TMS and the TMS Foundation are partners.
