    Challenging times call for a new kind of leadership

    Today’s challenges require leadership that can bridge the divides in our society. Now more than ever, we must all act in big and small ways to address structural inequities and help people heal from the effects of racism. What’s needed are compassionate and capable leaders in and from our communities.

    The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) Community Leadership Network at the Center for Creative Leadership is an innovative fellowship for local leaders to connect, grow and lead transformational change toward a more equitable society. The 18-month program offers hands-on training, personalized coaching and mentoring, and a practicum experience.

    The Program

    5 All-Class Sessions

    In these core sessions, fellows build self-mastery, deepen understanding of racism and equity, and gain knowledge and skills relevant to community engagement and leading in place.

    5 Community Cohort Convenings

    Between All-Class Sessions, fellows participate in a smaller community cohort, where they go deeper on issues specific to their communities and begin to develop a collaborative, place-based Community Leadership Project.

    8 Professional Coaching Sessions

    Each fellow is paired with one of the Center for Creative Leadership’s global cadre of executive coaches. One-on-one coaching sessions guide fellows in bringing class material to life on their leadership journey.

    Community Leadership Project

    Community cohorts collaboratively develop a place-based, culminating project drawing on what they’ve learned. The last three months of the program focus on its implementation and working collectively to create transformational change in local communities.

    All-Class Closing Ceremony

    In August 2020, fellows reconvene to celebrate the successes of their Community Leadership Projects and their transformational journey throughout the fellowship and beyond.

    Program Flow
