Secured Reviews Other reviews by… “We have a rich history in community leadership development and we know the criticality of addressing structural racism and promoting racial healing to remove barriers to opportunity. We are excited because this is an important report that proactively addresses the impact of structural racism on leadership development.”
“A report released this summer by the Leadership Learning Community, a national nonprofit that focuses on leadership development, calls into question the stale commitment to diversity of so many progressive Americans. How to Develop and Support Leadership that Contributes to Racial Justice, co-authored by a group of the country's most cutting-edge thinkers on race and leadership, very politely points out that the left shouldn't be so quick to point fingers.”
“A thought-provoking new report on leadership and race entitled “How to Develop and Support Leadership that Contributes to Racial Justice” has just been issued by the Leadership Learning Community. The report suggests the leadership programs that simply focus upon diversity practices, equal opportunity, and individualism, do not recognize how systems such as culture, institutional practices, and policies, impact career and life opportunities for disadvantaged groups.”
