Transforming Leadership Opportunities into Reality

The Florida Engineering Leadership Institute (FELI) is a leadership program that puts training into practice. It was created to transition engineering professionals into community professionals and leaders within our societies, communities, and workplaces. Through its initial 10-month class, FELI enhances the leadership skills of its participants and sets out a clear pathway to put these skills into practice serving our profession and our communities. FELI also provides networking across the current and past classes, serving as an outreach group to business and community leaders.

FELI runs from November through August and consists of six sessions held in key cities throughout Florida. Each session focuses on a different aspect of leadership, ranging from development of personal leadership skills to team building, through interactive sessions and first hand accounts from experts in their respective fields.

Congratulations to the FELI Class of 2024!
