Leadership Learning Community is excited to be hosting Creating Space XI: Tools for Transformation -
Supporting Inclusive, Networked and Collective Leadership.

Here is just a snapshot of what the three day convening will include:

  • Experience and debrief a systems thinking simulation you might be able to use:

  • Participate in a module that has successfully used a ship metaphor to have constructive conversations about power and privilege

  • Discuss a case study of a new leadership program that set out to incorporate all of the latest and best thinking about design methodology, systems thinking and bringing a network mindset to leadership development

  • Learn about and experience a  team assessment tool and process being used by a successful youth leadership program

In promoting Creating Space and outreaching to our community, we have heard from a number of folks that the cost of Creating Space is prohibitive to their participation.  LLC is committed to equity and inclusion and we do recognize that in the leadership development field a number of non-profit grassroots programs have less access to resources for their work and may even operate on a very tight budget.  We want to ensure that everyone who wants to be at the table has the opportunity to do so.  That being said, LLC has restructured the registration costs for Creating Space to include a sliding scale of $250, $375, or $500 for registration.  If you can afford the $500 registration this will help us to underwrite costs for programs that might not otherwise be able to attend.  This is a way for all of us to practice equity and inclusion. Foundation partners registration will remain the same ($650).  We are also giving participants the opportunity to contribute to the Equity Fund, made available for individuals who would not otherwise be able to attend due to financial constraints. Finally, if $250 is still an obstacle to your participation, let us know and we will do everything possible to help you attend.


For more information, including hotel costs, please visit the Creating Space page on our website.  If you have questions, feel free to reach out to Miriam Persley, Operations Manager via email or call 510-238-9080 x301.

We are looking forward to seeing you all and having all your voices at Creating Space!
