We invite leadership programs, funders, researchers, consultants and evaluators across the nation to join the event. In short everyone who has an interest in leadership development and learning.  Come prepared to contribute what you know and benefit from the experience of others!

 

2. What are the benefits of participating in Creating Space?

  • You will be exposed to new leadership development models, resources, evaluation strategies and/or new ways of thinking about how to support leadership with the capacity to increase the collective impact of your work.
  • You will feel supported and/or challenged to consider changes in your own leadership work that could increase the impact of your work in communities, networks and systems.

  • You will participate in a meeting that values a culture that is inclusive of and respectful of diverse viewpoints and where all voices are heard.
  • You will have the opportunity to network with other stakeholders and remain connected for purposes of learning and collaboration.
     

3. Where can I submit my ideas for Creating Space?

Submit your ideas here. We are turning to you for ideas/models/approaches that are breaking new ground.  Maybe you are experimenting with a new approach in your leadership development work or your recruitment strategy; maybe you are developing curriculum for bringing a race conscious lens to leadership work or a more network-centric approach.  Maybe you don't run a leadership program but you are consciously developing people in the course of organizing work, developing a network or a coalition effort. The design team will be creating multiple opportunities for you to share and learn about the work of others in meaningful ways. We invite you to share what you would like to offer in informal or formal exchanges.  All of your ideas will be shared on the Creating Space page on the Leadership Learning Community website as you post them.
