American Express Leadership Academy

The Center for Creative Leadership’s partnership with American Express on the American Express Leadership Academy began in 2008. The leadership academy provides an immersive week-long training in personal and professional development to the next generation of nonprofit leaders. The cohort-based experience is designed to address the growing leadership gap within the nonprofit sector. To date, CCL and American Express have collaborated to provide this program to nearly 1,000 leaders.

We conducted this alumni survey to commemorate 10 years of working together to provide nonprofit leadership development experience and to understand the experiences of participants after they complete the program. This document serves as a summary of our survey findings from 10 years of Academy participants.
