Local Leaders Out Front: Responding to Community-led Strategies and Investing in Local Leaders of Color

Date: March 16, 2017

Time: 1-2pm EST

Register here 

Supporting local leaders who are able to drive community-based strategies is at the heart of our social justice work. This is especially important when we are targeting leadership mindsets and challenging problematic historical narratives.  Join AchieveMission and TandemEd in discussing:

  • What does it mean to take a justice-minded approach to supporting local leaders of color?

  • What gets in our way of effectively hiring, developing, and retaining local leaders of color?

  • How do we help our partners and collaborators hold themselves accountable to justice-minded work?

  • What are the organizational and individual sacrifices we must be willing to make to adjust toward these goals?

In this interactive session, you will be prompted to reflect on your own organization and practice, examine what might be getting in your way of supporting and investing in local leaders in your community, and identify key practices that may serve you in building and sustaining a justice-minded approach to your work.

Done well, succession plans can turbocharge development plans and leadership development, decrease the costs and risks of leadership turnover, and foster a more diverse, equitable and inclusive organization.

Great teams do not just happen. They need to be created. Have you reflected that your organization would benefit from a stronger leadership team? Is your leadership team less a team and more a collection of individuals? Would the team be more effective if members worked more tightly together, towards shared goals, with clear norms for decision-making and communications? If your answer is yes, you are not alone.

Join us for "Build High Impact Leadership Teams with Team Charters" to discuss the steps to creating a stronger and more effective leadership team. Presenters will share examples, tools and methodologies that have been proven effective in nonprofits.
