I was interested in developing leadership skills that would help me not only with what I’m doing now, but also in the future.

 

Dr. Mulumebet “Millie” Worku, Faculty, N.C. State A&T University

The Women’s Leadership Program flipped a switch in me that let me recognize the deep satisfaction I take in creating something. The now ten-year journey of GlobalGiving has all been about creation.

 

Mari Kuraishi, co-founder and President of GlobalGiving

Learning how to read and facilitate CCL’s 360-degree assessments has had a strong positive impact on the leadership development efforts at Year Up. The instruments are solid, the course was expertly taught, and the insights that our leaders are getting are really supporting their growth. Thank you, CCL, for quality materials and for supporting Year Up’s mission to close the Opportunity Divide.

 

Dan Handalian, Senior Director of Leadership Development, Year Up

There are truly talented professionals working in non-profits that spend much of their careers trying to find affordable professional development opportunities. The work of CCL is cutting-edge and relevant in all areas of our careers. Words can’t describe what the scholarship means to me. This gave me the opportunity to learn about myself as a person and as a leader. My experience at CCL was transformative as I have begun thinking about my role as a leader in our society and the impact I can have on my small corner of the world by working to become a servant leader.

 

Darrell Cotton, Head of School at High Point Friends School

CCL’s mission is to advance the understanding, practice and development of leadership for the benefit of society worldwide. The Center for Creative Leadership is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization directed by a distinguished Board of Governors.
