About the Leadership Academy

Leading through Change is an interactive workshop designed specifically for leaders in the field of prevention. Participants will be empowered and inspired to lead their teams through change – whether the change is planned or unplanned – while they process the changes for themselves. They'll learn a change-management system that is easy to follow, simple to maintain and supports them becoming better leaders, encouraging the best from their teams and providing optimal outcomes for the communities they serve.

Participants will learn skills that not only enhance their ability to lead their team during times of change, but also fosters a positive work environment, increases productivity, and reduces turnover. Finally, participants will learn how to facilitate a culture of continuous improvement and pave the way for future leaders to emerge and a culture that is primed to deliver health equity.

No matter if the change is a deadly pandemic, a polarized political landscape, or even changes to public laws, participants will uncover and practice a system that will enable them to lead their team, their agencies and themselves through any change that may come their way.

The Leadership Academy will take place virtually over the course of 4 days, 4 hours each day. There will be a 30-minute break in each session.

Due to the high demand and the intensive nature of the course, we require applicants to meet some minimal qualifications to ensure a committed and capable cohort. This selection process ensures that every participant is poised to maximize their learning and contribute meaningfully to the collective experience.

Embrace the opportunity to lead with confidence and agility—complete the application below to become a part of this transformative journey. Applications are due July 24, 2024, at 5:00 pm PDT. Applicants will be informed of their acceptance status no later than August 6, 2024.
