Amarillo Mayor Ginger Nelson is in New York City this week as part of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative – a select educational opportunity for 38 mayors chosen for the intensive education program.

The yearlong program provides mayors with world-class executive training and coaching to help deliver results for cities. Nelson is part of the Initiative’s Class of 2021-22 - a select class of mayors participating in a program delivered by faculty from Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School as well as world-class experts from Bloomberg Philanthropies’ global network. 

Nelson is attending at no cost to the City of Amarillo. The program is fully funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies.

“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.”

Michael R. Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies and three-term mayor of New York City, collaborated with Harvard University leadership to create the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative in 2017. Collectively, Harvard University and Bloomberg Philanthropies aim to help mayors and their leadership teams manage the complexities of running a city, and to give these leaders opportunities to learn from one another. The program provides an opportunity to share practices and learn from fellow mayors about the promising ideas that are helping to enhance the quality of life in cities around the world.
