Ladder to Leadership
This initiative, a collaboration of the RWJF and the Center
for Creative Leadership, is designed to enhance the leadership
capacity of community-based nonprofit health organizations
serving vulnerable populations. Ladder to Leadership
focuses on developing critical leadership competencies for
early- to mid-career professionals through a 16-month leadership
development curriculum. The program will be delivered in
nine priority communities on a staggered schedule over the
next four years. Up to 30 fellows will be selected to participate
in the program in each of nine targeted communities across
the U.S.: Central NY; Cleveland, OH; Birmingham, AL; Albuquerque,
NM; Eastern NC; Portland, OR.; Mid-South Region (Western
TN, Eastern AR, and Northern MS); NJ (specific site/region
to be determined); and Starr County, TX. For information,
