Cultivating Inclusive Leadership Institute
Developing skills for diversity, inclusion, innovation and impact
A plethora of research shows that bringing together diverse perspectives significantly increases a group’s impact and ability to innovate, but only when leaders attend to inclusion as well as diversity. To help hone the understandings, skills and behaviors of inclusive, engaged leaders, the Cornell Team and Leadership Center and the Natural Leaders Initiative of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County are offering the week-long Cultivating Inclusive Leadership Institute in October 2018. The institute’s change-oriented curriculum offers participants from across the U.S. evidence-based models and practical tools to foster the kind of authentic engagement than can collectively solve complex problems and transform communities. The funding for this project supports partial scholarships to participants in smaller, grassroots social change and community development nonprofits.
