Leadership Institute

Community Memorial Foundation believes that leadership requires the capacity to turn vision into reality. That’s why we provide grantee board members and staff leadership with training in key areas of organizational development.

Strengthening Leaders, Strengthening Organizations

After soliciting feedback from grantee focus groups, Leadership Institute workshops will focus on three areas:
  • Financial Management
  • Leadership Development
  • Racial Equity | Racial Justice
Workshops are open to board and staff of CMF grantee partner organizations; up to two people per organization may attend.

RACIAL EQUITY WORKSHOPS
Workshops will be facilitated by Janine Hill of Soar Strategies, and will be conducted via Zoom.

 

 

Racial Equity | Part 1

This session explores why racism exists, how racial equity is both a process and an outcome, and how our personal experiences influence the way we show up with our colleagues and partners.

 

Racial Equity Assessment

This session premieres a customized racial equity assessment tool for grantee organizations.

 

Racial Equity | Part 2

This session will build upon the concepts in Part 1, while providing concrete tips and organizational examples of successful racial equity strategies.

 

Peer Learning Circles

CMF is hosting a series of peer equity learning circles to provide grantees with a forum to discuss their racial equity journeys and brainstorm next steps in applying these principles to their own work.

A total of three peer learning circles will be offered, and each circle will meet for two sessions. Participants must commit to attending both of the two, hour-long learning sessions scheduled for their circle, and must have taken at least one of the racial equity workshops referenced above.

REGISTER FOR GROUP A | OCT. 19 & NOV. 11

REGISTER FOR GROUP B | OCT. 22 & NOV. 18

REGISTER FOR GROUP C | OCT. 27 & DEC. 7
