LEADING CHANGE involves identifying, recruiting, and developing leadership, organizing community around that leadership, and building power from the resources of that community. Taking a “head, heart and hands” approach, we link concepts, values and practice in a highly interactive setting.
The program is designed for leaders conducting real-life organizing projects that support their organization’s ongoing work – campaigns or organizing projects, for example, of NGOs, unions, non-profit organizations, advocacy groups, and other social movements. We also encourage team participation. Participants build relationships, coach one another and learn together online and in their local communities.
In the past 5 years, 458 alumnus from 41 countries have completed the course, working in a wide array of fields, including education, health care, immigration rights, food justice, gender equality, union/workers rights, electoral campaigns, environmental justice, human rights and international relations. Join us!
Applications are open until December 9, 2014. To apply, or for more information on program dates, tuition, and curriculum, please visit the Leadership, Organizing and Action: Leading Change web site at www.hks.harvard.edu/ee/fb

Do we respond to loss with a story of redemption or contamination? Do we respond to change with a story of rejection, accommodation, reform, or revolution? To learn more about the session, you […]
