ESG Operations, Inc. is excited to announce the commencement of our historic collaboration with the University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government. As part of our ongoing Leadership ESG employee development program, we have partnered with the Carl Vinson Institute to deliver their Management Development Program to a select group of twenty current and future ESG leaders. “We are proud to be the first non-governmental sponsor to partner with the Carl Vinson Institute in its history,” says Roger Dodd, ESG Human Resources Director. The Carl Vinson Institute has been providing leadership and governance training for Georgia’s government officials since 1927.

Laura Meadows, Director of the University of Georgia Carl Vinson Institute of Government, says, “We are excited about our new partnership with ESG Operations, Inc. in supporting professional development opportunities for their staff as they serve cities and counties throughout Georgia. This training program is truly one of the cornerstones of our mission to assist communities in better serving their citizens.”

“Our collaboration with ESG Operations, Inc., in delivering leadership development programs and curriculum for their staff, is an extremely innovative approach in training delivery though a public-private partnership,” adds Stacy Jones, Associate Director of Government Training, Education and Development, University of Georgia Carl Vinson Institute of Government.

Ben Morrow, ESG’s Assistant Project Manager in Douglas, Georgia, will be participating in this year’s program. “I’m very excited to attend the inaugural ESG/Carl Vinson Institute program. I see this as yet another development opportunity afforded to me during my five years with ESG. This is a continuation of the theme I was introduced to when I first joined the company as a trainee—if I provide the effort, ESG will provide the opportunity.”
