The Iowa Technology Leadership Institute develops tomorrow’s Iowa technology leaders through programming designed to fill gaps that technical education and experience can often neglect. The institute provides access to networking with peers and experienced executives from across the industry. Classes focus on the non-technical aspects of leadership that help seasoned professionals build influence and move to the next level of their careers. The experience will include engaging presentations, interactive panelists and small group problem-solving scenarios.



Sessions consist of engaging presentations from various speakers and panelists as well as small group problem-solving scenarios.


The institute consists of 8.5 days of facilitated content, 6 evening events, 2 TAI Events and a Graduation Reception. Evening events are not mandatory, except for the Opening Reception and the Graduation Reception.
