Generation WV Looks to Grow Young Leaders in WV Through Fellowship Program
14 Feb 2023
Generation West Virginia (GWV), the statewide organization dedicated to attracting, retaining, and advancing young people in the Mountain State, is currently accepting applications for its nine-month fellowship program focused on equipping early-career professionals with the skills needed to advance their careers and grow as leaders in West Virginia.
The program was designed in response to the ongoing loss of young talent from West Virginia to out-of-state companies, as research shows that providing quality opportunities for professional development is a critical strategy for retention and solving many workforce challenges. For instance, according to a study conducted by LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, 94% of respondents reported that they’d be more likely to stay at a company that invests in employees’ careers.
