Over the past five years, LeaderBridge has engaged over 140 nonprofit leaders in the Greater Washington region. In response to feedback from LeaderBridge alumni asking for more opportunities to connect and continue their professional development, LeaderBridge has partnered with expert program providers to offer the following programs for LeaderBridge alumni.






Executive Coaching and How to Get Started


Program Dates: October 27, 2022 at 1:00-1:30pm ET

As a leader, especially of a small nonprofit, it is vital to not just invest in your community and organization, but also in yourself. The past year has made it clear the importance and impact of nonprofit leadership--but we also know leaders are exhausted, facing new challenges, and looking for emerging opportunities. Given that, is an executive coach the right tool for your professional development? If so, how do you decide on a coach and what can you expect? If you make this investment, how do you ensure you get something back that is worthwhile? Join Catalogue for Philanthropy to learn about what executive coaching is and isn't, how to choose a coach, and how to ensure it is a meaningful partnership.





BIPOC Leadership Development Cohort


Program Dates: October 2022 – December 2022

Application Due: October 4, 2022

The Catalogue for Philanthropy is launching their next BIPOC Leadership Development cohort for current Executive Directors (3 years in role or less) or senior staff who plan to step into the executive role in the next couple of years. This cohort will meet six times across 2022, beginning with a kick-off meeting in October. Meetings will start with professional development around a specific topic, then a facilitated conversation with peers. Topics will include major donor stewardship, board engagement, marketing, and more. The cohort will collectively focus on both the hard skills, data, and trends around these topics as well as the specific concerns and challenges leaders of color have to address when implementing the practices discussed.







Program Dates: September 2022 – January 2023

Application Due: August 1, 2022

LeaderBridge is partnering with Equity Through Action to offer a Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI*) Leadership Series! Facilitated by race equity consultant and nonprofit leader C. Marie Taylor, this virtual cohort will guide nonprofit leaders through practical skill-building techniques to create a space for support and cultural shifts within their organizations. The program will bring together leaders and board members from 10 local organizations for two-hour sessions over 5 months. This program is designed to meet organizations where they are on their racial equity journey, and individuals can participate in the series regardless of their level of understanding of JEDI* work. Watch this 1-minute video from Equity Through Action to learn more.
