Given the increasingly multicultural nature of our community, nonprofit agencies and civic commissions need seasoned leaders with experience navigating complex challenges.
As a result, MLP considers Inclusive Excellence a core competency of leadership. As leaders, it is our duty to set the standard by example because that’s what leaders do. Embracing these principles enables leaders to foster creation of equitable and inclusive environments, policies and practices as they do their important work for our community.
Driven by our values, MLP committed to creating change with the goal of justice for all. We recognized that no one person or organization can solve all of these complex issues. We conducted an Inclusive Excellence survey to obtain feedback from all our graduates. We organized a diverse group of staff members, board members, and MLP graduates to begin listening to and understanding the voices of the victims of injustice. Together, they are helping MLP stay true to the commitment to bring about the cultural and tactical changes necessary.
