BETTER LEADERS. BETTER RESULTS. BETTER WORLD.

Republic Bank Foundation

We believe that leadership development can positively transform individuals, organizations, and entire communities. It’s why we introduced the “Leadership Green Room” in 2015. Since that time, these leadership courses, focused exclusively on essential skills, have become a significant source of sustainable growth for the organizations we serve.

We know that the right training experiences strengthen your leadership pipeline and employee engagement – both of which are critical for driving business results. Training your leaders how to effectively work with and through others will equip them for the hard work ahead.

The Leadership Green Room can help to ensure that your organization is filled with diverse individuals who are inspired and equipped to lead for the future – whatever it may bring. We are prepared to pivot and adapt as we navigate this environment alongside you, and will offer both virtual and in-person options as circumstances demand.

As a nonprofit leadership foundation, every investment you make with us to develop your people is reinvested into our mission and serves the greater good of our community.
