How to Develop and Support Leadership that Contributes to Racial Justice Edit Title

The report, How to Develop and Support Leadership that Contributes to Racial Justice, offers practical methods and recommendations to help leadership programs better prepare their participants to address racial inequalities in communities across the U.S. The publication, produced by the Leadership Learning Community in collaboration with other thought leaders in the racial equity and leadership development fields, is the first report to analyze the link between major philanthropy investments in the racial equity and leadership development fields. Key recommendations include: 1) Make programs more accessible to people of color by providing them with appropriate resources, training and tools; 2) Incorporate training and tools to help participants understand the impact of structural racism; and 3) Promote collective leadership – train participants to collaborate with others across different sectors and organizations in order to tackle the systems that maintain racial inequalities.

About Leadership for a New Era
The Leadership and Race publication is part of the Leadership for a New Era (LNE) Series. LNE is a collaborative research initiative launched in 2009 by the Leadership Learning Community. Through this initiative we seek to promote leadership approaches that are more inclusive, networked and collective. We believe the dominant leadership model that places a strong emphasis on the individual is limiting our ability to positively impact change in our society; so we have joined forces with a diverse group of funders, researchers, practitioners and consultants in the leadership development field to shift the current thinking. Our research focuses on the following four areas: Leadership and Race, Leadership and Networks, Collective Leadership, and Leadership Across Difference. We will test and promote ideas through face-to-face and online meetings, and produce a series of publications, practical assessment tools, and online resource directories for each area. More info:
