In 2016, Wilson shepherded a one-year strategic planning process that yielded focus areas and goals that will propel the City of Columbia towards the future. The plan challenges citizens to envision Columbia in the year 2036. Seven focus areas and five goals are outlined in the City Council Vision Statement called Envision Columbia. Wilson and the City’s Executive Leadership team have developed a work plan that is closely connected to the Envision Columbia goals. The internal work plan will be re-evaluated and updated every two years.

You’re invited to join the Lead Like a Woman Circle to explore the many facets of female leadership.
Our ‘lunch and learn’ style Circle meets virtually on the 1st Tuesday of each month at 12 PM. This month’s meeting has been rescheduled for Tuesday, November 28.
We’ll delve into what female leadership looks like, hear from women in power about what female leaders need to thrive, and how we can be allies. We will discuss how to lead like a woman, role models to learn from, where to get started, and why female leaders are more important now than ever.
This month, our guest speaker is Teresa Wilson.
Join us to help define what it means to Lead Like a Woman!
