Leadership Training

Engineering is a demanding field that requires a broad knowledge base and combinations of skills to successfully practice as a professional. ASCE provides you with the tools to become an effective leader in the workplace, in your own life, and in the profession.

Emerging Leaders Alliance The Emerging Leaders Alliance (ELA) provides an opportunity for both online and in-person leadership training with members of leading engineering, research, and scientific organizations.  ELA seeks to promote the development of great leaders to guide engineering and scientific professions in addressing the needs of people in the 21st century. An interdisciplinary annual leadership conference is typically held in the fall of each year to provide training in social styles, leading innovation, global and virtual team leadership, and more. For further information and specific participant criteria, visit the Emerging Leaders Alliance web page.

As a partner in the ELA, ASCE selects several members each year to represent civil engineers at the annual leadership training conference.  Applications must be submitted by members interested in participating, and selected representatives pay no registration fee to attend, but are responsible for their own travel expenses.  Find out about other live and on-demand leadership training resources at
