LLC Webinar Series | An Innovative Approach to Supporting the Leadership of People of Color

Earlier this month, we had a great webinar with the women of The WISE Network. Kenya McKnight presented on how leadership development can dismantle systemic racism. Leadership that comes from and for community creates lasting changes that transverse generations of oppression and inequity.

Learn from them how we support leadership that is enduring and transformative? See how taking an asset-based approach rather than deficit-based approach to leadership can transform the work of leadership development.

 

The WISE Network engages Black women in Minnesota to create lasting financial stability in their communities. Unlike other programs, they are not a typical nonprofit but rather a network working towards the economic stability of all of its members. Their program is a response to generations of redlining and disinvestments. The WISE Network is committed to dismantling systems of economic inequality and racism.

 

Come learn from the WISE Network's unique approach, and how leadership development programs can incorporate similar asset-based strategies to support the leadership of their communities and create lasting change and innovative solution to systemic problems.
