CALL FOR APPLICATIONS 2017
The Kresge Foundation Emerging Leaders in Public Health
Calling all local public health officers – apply now!
The Kresge Foundation is partnering with the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health (UNC) to recruit and select 20 teams for Emerging Leaders in Public Health (ELPH). ELPH is a leadership development initiative aimed at helping current and future local public health leaders advance innovative models which improve their organizations and position them for new opportunities to meet the changing health needs of their communities. Teams of two co-leaders will embark on an 18-month, action-oriented experience. They will focus on the development and implementation of a “transformative concept” that shifts or expands the capacity of their local health department. Participating leadership teams will receive coaching, education, and up to $125,000 from The Kresge Foundation to apply their leadership skills and competencies in the development and implementation of their concept.

The Leadership Learning Community is very excited about launching our Action Learning Seed Fund. As our facilitators in the Race Forward Training said “when you are resisting, you struggle. It goes slow.” Racial equity takes time and we want to give our Selection Committee enough time to make intentional decisions together.

Last week, LLC along with some of you, attended Race Forward’s Building Racial Equity- Foundations Training at the Oakland Peace Center. The training grounded us in language to describe racism on all the levels it thrives (internal, interpersonal, institutional, systemic). The work of racial equity then is to not only destroy racism as it exists, but to “bake in” racial equity to eradicate it completely.
Before the day was complete, however, it was our mission to identify the many ways that we, those present, continue to create systems of oppression. Soon Deborah and I were engaged in a deep conversation on how the leadership development field can also fall victim to this on a systemic level.

Several years ago LLC had the opportunity to evaluate the Mesoamerican Reef Leadership Program (MAR-L). It was an important evaluation that laid some groundwork for a research project we initiated the following year to explore the topic of ‘Leadership and Large Scale Change.’ We were inspired by MAR-L. MAR-L set itself apart from many other leadership programs because they were not content to simply focus on building the leadership capacity of young entrepreneurial conservation leaders, which itself would have been an important endeavor. They were also willing to ask tough questions about whether the investment in young people and their projects was making a difference in the health of the reef. Ultimately, most leadership programs are serving some larger purpose, and because of the challenges of understanding the contributions of their leadership development work to larger scale changes, most programs focus primarily on the ways in which participants of programs believe they have benefited. This is starting to change, and we are excited to be part of evaluating programs that tell a different story about the ways in which leadership development programs are supporting changes in the lives of people, and the planet.

If you missed our interview with Patrick Brown from Greenlining last month please check it out. He described the way in which as the Director of the Leadership Academy, he brings a number of contempletive practices into all of their leadership work. He described the benefits of different practices to those engaged in leadership. We are including another resource as a complement to Patrick interview. The link to the Tree of Contempletive Practices creates a scheme for understanding the different types of practices with more detailed descriptions. We hope you find it helpful.
