As part of Equality California Institute’s priority to develop LGBTQ leaders at all levels of government and business throughout the state, Equality California Institute is proud to announce our 2019 Leadership Academy.
The Equality California Institute Leadership Academy is an innovative program to train the next generation of LGBTQ leaders in California. The goal of the program is to prepare 25 LGBTQ leaders to run for public office and/or seek appointments to state, municipal and corporate boards and commissions.
The upcoming 2019 Northern California cohort includes a two-day training academy on Saturday, August 24th and Sunday, August 25th provided by current elected and appointed public officials as well as Equality California Institute staff. Participants’ credentials will be included in a “resource bank” of LGBTQ leaders that Equality California will use to advocate for placement of leaders in appointed positions.
