About Us

Leadership is the lever needed to spark transformative change across our communities

Leadership Learning Community is a national nonprofit organization transforming the way leadership development work is understood, practiced and promoted, primarily within the nonprofit sector. 

We believe that the traditional leadership development model must to be challenged in order to address the needs of all leaders. By centering the experiences of folks most impacted by racism and inequity, we work towards transforming leadership development approaches and systems to reflect and create an equitable world by tapping into the potential of everyone seeking an opportunity to better society.

We know that we need a meta-shift in how we understand and develop leadership if we are going to produces systems change! This means leading and learning together through inclusive, networked and collective leadership to innovate new interventions that challenge the dominant way of thinking about leadership development
