LLC Webinar Series | Learning Through the Greenlining Experience: A Foundational Toolkit for Leadership Development Programs

780 views

Published on

The Greenlining Institute was founded as a response to institutional redlining of communities of color from economic opportunities. Twenty-two years later, the organization has grown in both scale and impact, including incorporating a strong commitment to the leadership development of emerging leaders of color. With its successes and challenges, Greenlining has learned many lessons on the road to positive social change. This webinar will focus on how the organization has evolved and created a renowned leadership development program for social justice leaders, while always maintaining its roots in racial equity and advocacy. In using the organization’s journey as a case study, participants will receive a perspective and best practices for incorporating a leadership development program from foundation to evaluation.
