This report suggests that leadership programs should: 1) make their programs more accessible for people of color; 2) help participants understand how race limits access to opportunities - in other words, the impact of structural racism; and 3) promote collective leadership. This approach will help participants work together to tackle the systems that maintain racial inequalities. The publication offers practical methods and recommendations to help leadership programs prepare their participants to bring a more race conscious lens to all policy and service work and empower people of color to better lead their communities. This is the first in a series of publications in the Leadership for a New Era Series and is co-authored by:
