Multiple Styles of Leadership: Increasing the Participation of People of Color in the Leadership of the Nonprofit Sector

Abstract: The Leadership Learning Community has partnered with the Annie E. Casey Foundation on a research project to draw on the combined experience of more than 100 leadership programs with regard to strategies for increasing the access to and sustainability of leadership positions for people of color in the sector. The first phase of the project focused on the "pipeline," was titled "Lessons from the Field of Leadership Development: How to Increase Leadership Opportunities for People of Color" and was led by Deborah Meehan. The second phase of the project was titled "Multiple Styles of Leadership: Increasing the Participation of People of Color in the Leadership of the Nonprofit Sector" and was led by Elissa Perry.
