Intercultural Leadership Institute is a collaborative program of Alternate ROOTS, First Peoples Fund, National Association of Latino Arts & Cultures (NALAC) and PA’I Foundation. The effort grew out of our direct experiences as leaders of these founding cultural organizations. We often found that many personal and professional leadership programs emphasized dominant cultural norms, modes of learning and social approaches that didn’t match our commitment to cultural equity and change-making in our own communities.
The program will be rigorous and will require commitment to attend three week-long in-person convenings as well as participation in online sessions, peer interaction and other engagement over the course of a one-year period.
Deadline: January 17, 2018
Number: Up to 30 people will be selected to participate in the Institute with 12 nominees chosen from the ILI core partners’ memberships and the remaining participants chosen from the applicant field at large.
