Boards & Commissions Leadership Institute
2021 Cohort began Saturday January 16th!
Nominations are closed for the 2021 Boards & Commissions Leadership Institute.
Check back in the summer of 2021 for information about joining our next cohort!
The Boards & Commissions Leadership Institute (BCLI) provides public policy training for our Sacramento area community advocates. It's time that neighborhood leaders have not just a voice, but a seat on the dais.
For our training institute, we seek out and recruit people from low-income communities and communities of color who have a proven track record of leadership as social justice advocates in their neighborhoods. They’re distinguished by a passion to change systems by learning the important aspects of public policy development from the inside. We deeply invest in each cohort through our 6-week BCLI fellowship, which teaches advocates how to understand complex and intersecting policy arenas, navigate the culture and language of commissions, and build effective relationships in and outside the commission.
Public policy topics covered by the BCLI:
Power, Privilege & Structural Racialization
Land Use and Affordable Housing
Robert's/Rosenberg's Rules of Order, Ethics & Storytelling
Workplace Equity/Labor 101
(6) Consecutive Saturdays beginning January 16th, 2021 thru February 20th, 2021
