“As we attended graduation at SLU, we know this journey may have ended; however, a new one is beginning as we take on new roles and responsibilities, mentor the next group of cohorts, and increase the ranks of the technology leadership community. Thank you for empowering us with the needed tools and bringing this awesome program to the St. Louis region.”

What participants are saying about The TechLX

The mentor process was very eye opening. It was great to have an informal setting to pick the brain of CIOs to determine what things I needed to improve on or have plan to manage as I progressed in my career.

It was refreshing to talk with people who understand what I’m going through who work in different companies. There was very much an, “Oh I’m not alone in this!” factor. We hope to continue to meet after the program ends.

It pointed out areas where I was weak and allowed me to create an action plan. It also helped me set expectations for goals that might not be attainable. It gave me great insight into the level of the talent pool in [our community].

Through networking, in -class content, and mentoring, my career will continue to benefit from this program.
