Amarillo Mayor Ginger Nelson is representing the City at the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative in New York City.

The yearlong program provides mayors with world-class executive training and coaching to help deliver results for cities.

Mayor Nelson is just 1 of 38 mayors to attend the 2021-2022 class of mayors participating in the program delivered by faculty from Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School as well as world-class experts from Bloomberg Philanthropies’ global network.

“Being selected for the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative is an honor,” Nelson said. “I’m looking forward to this great opportunity for city leaders to meet, exchange ideas, and discuss how best to approach solving pressing problems for our citizens.”

The City also says that Mayor Nelson is attending the program at no cost to the City of Amarillo and is fully funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies.
