United Way is hosting a recruitment reception on Thursday January 18, 2018. This will be an opportunity to hear more about Project Diversity/Pride Leadership from United Way staff, as well as past graduates of the programs. Register to attend the recruitment reception here:
Project Diversity and Pride Leadership are United Way’s inclusive leadership development programs designed to create impactful, diverse leaders from central Ohio’s racial minority and LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, Queer) communities. As our community becomes increasingly diverse, it’s critical that the composition of our leadership reflects this diversity to include many perspectives and approaches. Both programs train participants to serve effectively on nonprofit boards and committees by providing the skills necessary to take their talents to the next level.
The curriculum of both eight-month training programs includes monthly sessions of two to four hours in length. United Way believes it’s important for participants to immerse themselves in the community and hear first-hand from local nonprofits about the work they do in order to best address the issues impacting our community. Throughout both programs, United Way provides community tours, education and direct access to local nonprofits.
