Six more leaders selected for LEAP Initiative to advance strategy and scale for nonprofit newsrooms
LOS ANGELES — The Institute for Nonprofit News announces the spring class of the LEAP initiative, an executive program designed to help senior leaders of established nonprofit news organizations navigate strategic challenges to advance their growth and impact. The six experienced executives selected for the spring class will work together to address their strategic challenges with support and guidance from INN as well as subject-matter experts and business coaches.
The participants for the Spring 2018 session are:
The cohort met June 12 for their first meeting in Orlando, Fla. in advance of INN's annual conference, INN Days 2018, where they participated in business leadership workshops alongside INN's Emerging Leaders Council and major gifts training programs. Members also attended the conference.
Led by INN Director of Programs and Services Fran Scarlett, the LEAP Initiative is a leadership program designed to help senior managers of well-established nonprofit news organizations seeking to update or change strategy or move to the next level of growth. LEAP is short for Lead, Execute, Accelerate, Pivot—four moves that help in leading growth in fast-changing environments. The program combines in-person training, online group meetings with subject-matter experts and advisors and individual executive coaching session. This is the second LEAP cohort.
The LEAP Initiative started in fall 2017.
LEAP is funded by a generous donation from The Democracy Fund.
