CAP’s Leadership Institute goal is to increase the participation of progressive people of color among the thinkers, shapers, and planners of policy at every level of government, nonprofit organizations, and groups that influence public policy.
We will assist members in developing:
The third Leadership Institute will begin September 24, 2015, and continue through May 20, 2016. Sessions will be held on a monthly basis. Program dates will be made available before the program starts.
The Institute will present a program of engagement for members that includes seminars, policy organization observation, visits to policy and media hubs, networking events, dinner discussions, and an assigned policy project.
Leadership Institute applicants should be highly motivated individuals seeking to expand their skills, perspectives, and networks to impact progressive social change. Successful applicants will have a demonstrated interest in filling the gaps that exist between traditional public policies and communities of color. All members must have at least three years of experience in policy or public service fields. If currently employed, applicants should secure written support from a supervisor affirming their participation in the program’s activities. It’s highly preferable that members live in the Washington, D.C., area or be capable of commuting to the area for monthly two-day meetings during the program period.
