Emerging Quality Leaders Program
THE 2020-2021 PROGRAM BEGINS IN MAY 2020
Real-world experience develops tomorrow’s quality leaders.
ASQ’s Emerging Quality Leaders program is for aspiring, high-potential quality professionals to take their careers to the next level in management. Identified by their organizations as having the ability to advance in their positions and careers, these individuals have actively demonstrated exemplary performance, values, and results in their current roles, and are ready to take the next step forward.
Ideal for the mid-level manager, this 12-month program accelerates the transfer of executive knowledge, soft skills, and broader industry perspectives to develop thought-leadership in the next generation of quality executives. Launching each year at the World Conference on Quality and Improvement, the program includes four main learning components: virtual sessions, interactive on-site visits at top companies, executive mentoring, and individual (or optional group) projects that focus on strength building and delivering results back to the organization.

“EQLP program provides a unique outside-in perspective on proven quality practices and methods that have helped organizations succeed in their strategic goals and business transformations. The opportunity to network and brainstorm business challenges with seasoned quality practitioners and senior executives is invaluable and will be a long lasting benefit that will outlast the annual program lifecycle.”
“The program is more than just a networking opportunity, it provides a chance to develop leadership potential by working with others who are highly skilled, inspired, and are in the best in their field.”
“The network provided unique learning opportunities, and the program was extremely thought-provoking. I expect the relationships I developed during this program will continue long after it’s over.”
“When sitting across the table from a business leader, quality needs to communicate the financial benefits of process management in enabling business system stability. At the end of the day, it’s all about meeting objectives defined by the business. You’ve got to connect with your internal customer.”
