Stayed tuned for more on: Civil Leadership for Vibrant Communities.

This program builds civil leadership skills — and leadership networks — in an engaging 8 session virtual series. It is made possible through a partnership with Braver Angels — a nationally-known, kind of a big deal non-profit organization.

Leaders who lead and foster civil conversations and welcome diverse perspectives make better decisions. That’s particularly important now, when communities, non-profits, and businesses are making decisions in a historically unique time of transition — and when there is a broad concern about difficulty in having community issues.

This program provides an opportunity to hone civil leadership skills while building your network in Wisconsin. Participants of previous learnings have shared that the program helps build the skills necessary to overcome divisions. Participants also shared a decrease in negative stereotypes of people with different perspectives.
