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 partners, the 2022 Leadership Institute will continue its focus on Leadership Development and Race Equity. Specifically, the Foundation will provide a series of offerings aimed at:
  • Understanding how leaders can improve results through effective leadership
  • Fostering learning agility across organizations
  • Introducing key concepts around racial equity, anti-racism, and the historical experiences of people of color in the U.S.
  • Providing opportunities for peer learning and coaching to implement racial equity principles within organizational culture and operations
Workshops are open to board and staff of CMF grantee partner organizations; up to two people per organization may attend.

RACIAL EQUITY LEARNING CIRCLES
Gatherings will consist of a lightly structured discussion group for grantee organizations. Attendees will learn the constructivist listening framework; brainstorm next steps with peers in their individual racial equity journeys; and discuss barriers to the application of racial equity principles.

Schedule: The second Tuesday of each month from 10:00– 11:00 AM, through October 2023

Coaching

Soar Strategies will provide coaching to two cohorts of 6 grantee organizations – each organization will have the opportunity to talk with a Soar Strategies team member six times throughout the year as they develop racial equity assessments, action plans, and more inclusive environments for their staff and partners. Organizations in each cohort will also meet twice over the 10-month grant period to share organizational case studies and get support/advice from the Soar Strategies team. Any CMF grantee organization that has participated in any of the trainings/peer learning circles in 2021 or 2022 is eligible to apply for this coaching opportunity. Applications for the fall cohort of Race Equity Coaching will be available in November.
