Generating ideas, connections, and action

A Diverse and Engaged Leadership Network

At the Leadership Learning Community, we strive to improve the leadership development field because we believe that through leadership, we can promote a more just and equitable society.

As a learning community, we provide our members with unparalleled access to resources and networking opportunities. Our members include a diverse group of hundreds of funders, practitioners and consultants, all of who are engaged in leadership development work, mostly in the nonprofit sector.  We identify emerging ideas and methodologies and host face-to-face and online learning opportunities, such as learning circles, where members are invited to explore these new developments in the field.  We are committed to documenting, posting and publishing the outcomes of the meetings on this website and our wikis.
