The Natural Leaders Initiative (NLI) is now accepting registrations for its acclaimed 5-workshop “From Scarcity to Abundance: Cultivating Diverse Leadership” series. This series is designed especially for staff, volunteers and Board members in Tompkins County organizations committed to the inter-related work of building inclusive, just and ecologically sound – that is, sustainable — communities. Open to participants from all levels of their organization. We encourage organizations to send multiple participants to increase impact and bolster organizational change.
While a series requires a significant time commitment, participants will use in-class time to work with others (within and across organizations) to:
- Identify new approaches to cultivating diverse relationships and leadership
- Develop concrete action plans to meet personal and organizational goals
- Try out ideas out between sessions, and return to share successes, problem-solve solutions, gain new perspectives and refine plans
- Build a support network for change – within and beyond your organization
- Evaluate success.
By the end of the series, participants will have a concrete work plan that integrates cultivating diversity into the work they are already doing.
