Leadership Development for Activism
and Systems Change
These are turbulent times in which public systems are being pushed to change by people with
conflicting beliefs about what is right. Whether the goal is to ban books or ban a garbage incinerator, advocacy plays a crucial function as a leverage point in systems change.
Change comes from small groups of people committed to one goal.
Individuals and nonprofits have the mission, knowledge, and power - often untapped - to shape public policies and systems critical to constituents and community.
Our goal is to develop a cadre of leaders who want
to move from talking ideas to making change happen. Advocacy is about more- a lot more-than lobbying.
our training is virtual or a hybrid of virtual and in-person. Scholarships are available.
Small group problem solving work is at the core of each workshop, based on real life scenarios tailored to each group of participants.
