LEAD.IS promotes transformative and sustainable social justice change. LEAD seeks to develop and implement solutions to social problems by engaging different generations in a dynamic process which respects and melds experience and innovation. Strategic activities will include training workshops, seminars, public speaking, and fellowships to identify and develop leaders of all ages.
LEAD seminars promote strategies and techniques to facilitate change. Workshops will include a women's leadership development series; communications skills building; media training; and effective use of social media.
LEAD seminars focus on how to build and sustain intergenerational cooperation. LEAD will present speakers at in-person events, webinars, and video chats.
LEAD public speakers target key audiences and help build coalitions and a movement for the advancement of social justice.
LEAD fellowships provide opportunities for present and emerging thought leaders to have time and financial support to research and develop ideas and theories. LEAD Fellows are mentored primarily by LEAD staff. LEAD will also arrange for meetings and consultations with selected individuals, who represent social justice organizations and movements.
