  • LA was one of the greatest things in my development as a leader and a new person in the Community. It challenged me about what I had assumed about myself and why I needed the others that were in this class with me! The number of times I have called on my classmates since my May graduation is too many to recall. EVERY one in that room I now consider leaders that will attack the issues that must be addressed!

  • Leadership Albany is among the most comprehensive community leadership training programs available from anywhere I have worked and lived. The curriculum provides a thorough education about community government, industry, services, business, and education. Program class members are a foundation of professional networking that fosters relationships throughout the community."

  • "Leadership Albany empowers relationships, networking and learning beyond the "typical" leadership courses. I was probably one of the few people that was "familiar" with each of subject days; but there was not one day that I did not walk away with greater understanding. This program provides a pathway to connect deeper in the community and provides fundamental skills that are transferable to any environment or any locale."

Damali Orozco
Site HR Manager, Procter and Gamble Albany Plant 

With more than 14 years in Human Resources management, Damali Orozco knows a thing or two about the mind and habits of the modern American worker. It’s that experience that she leans on as she works to mold workers into the kinds of employees that become leaders within her organization

At home, she plays mom to three boys – her husband (whom she says acts like a big kid) and her two sons, who are and three and five-year-old balls of energy.

When she’s not mentoring the new crop of P&G employees, Orozco can be found poolside or on the golf course.

A native of North Miami Beach, Fla., Orozco says that a very early age she learned to embrace the vibrant cultures of South Florida and witnessed tons of international tourists flock to the area which has broadened her perspective on life.

Orozco says she loves being in Albany because she’s only a five-hour drive from her family in central Florida and she’s excited to be in this year’s class of Leadership Albany!
