Join us for the third session of the Networks and Leadership Webinar Series on "Foundations as Network Leaders: Learning From One Foundation's Journey and Results"

WEBINAR VIDEO: Getting Real about Experimentation

May 26, 2016
1:00 -2:00 PM Pacific | 4:00 -5:00 PM Eastern

We've all heard the rhetoric. The future is uncertain and complex. We can’t do it alone, and collaboration is critical. The only way to succeed is to learn as quickly as possible through experimentation, which means getting comfortable with failure.

 

But what does this mean in practice? If this were easy, there wouldn’t be so many pundits telling everyone else to do it.

Webinar Series | Evolutionary Leadership: How To Redesign Our Communities, Institutions, and Societies

 

Thursday November 12th, 2015 at 11:00am Pacific

 

Most leadership programs today train leaders to be effective in the world we currently live in - the same world that is not working for all the humanity and its ecological systems. This makes leaders to consciously or unconsciously reinforce established cultures and institutions even if they have best intentions and are truly concerned about the people and the planet. This traps leaders in always leading from the past rather than from the highest possibility for all stakeholders. Evolutionary Leadership addresses this leadership trap of our time by enabling leaders to be effective in redesigning the world.

Building Networks and Movements for Social Justice

Building Networks and Movements for Social Justice

Lessons from the Pioneers in Justice Leadership Program

By Heather McLeod Grant and Daniel Lee

As leaders of nonprofits know, the social sector is at a critical inflection point, with external forces challenging many of our old ways of working. As the Leadership Learning Community (LLC) and others have written, new technologies are disrupting traditional approaches and breaking down silos within and between organizations. Simultaneously, collaboration and "networking" is becoming the new norm, rather than the exception.

In response to these trends, in 2010 the Levi Strauss Foundation (LSF) launched a program called Pioneers in Justice, offering intense support to a cohort of Bay Area Gen X leaders who had recently become executive directors of legacy social justice organizations. Over the past few years, with more than $3M invested in capacity-building, collaboration grants, and convening for peer learning, the program has helped these nonprofits leaders build their social media skills, transform their organizations, and mobilize larger networks and movements to drive greater social impact.
