This group formed a learning community with each other to explore areas of commonality and difference among their programs, to identify what shared boundary-crossing leadership competencies exist across different cultures and contexts, and to build a movement for social justice. The group has engaged in a learning process with each other that has significant contributions to make to our understanding of how to work across boundaries of race and culture.
  • Kim Amman Howard and BTW: informing change: Deborah (spoke with Kim on the phone). Both Kim and BTW work to strengthen the capacity of philanthropy to become more strategic about how to invest in leadership development for social and systems change. Kim and Claire collaborated on a learning project to highlight the diversity of ways that leadership is developed and supported within a 10-year Community Clinics Initiative (a project of the Tides Foundation and The California Endowment). We collaborated on a lessons learned piece for grantmakers that addressed how to support the emergence and development of leadership within a ten-year social change initiative. The lessons from this project are particularly relevant for those investing in change over the long-term.
