LOS ANGELES -- July 31, 2017 -- INN is seeking applications for an executive training and mentoring program designed to help senior leaders of nonprofit news organizations navigate strategic challenges that advance their growth and impact. Applications for the program are open to INN members through August 14. The LEAP Initiative is a cohort-based leadership program designed to help senior managers of well-established nonprofit news organizations who need to update their strategy, make a strategic pivot 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. A broad field of nonprofit newsrooms launched in the last decade built solid growth in their initial years and have become vital news sources for the public.
