For a sixth year, LeaderBridge has partnered with the Georgetown University Center for
Public & Nonprofit Leadership (CPNL) to support the participation of local nonprofit leaders in their Nonprofit Management Executive Certificate Program. This summer’s five LeaderBridge participants include Genesis Lazo of Just Neighbors, Marilyn Lovo of Ayuda, Paula Thomason of N Street Village, Paloma Martinez of La Cocina VA, and Yareli Urbina of the CAIR Coalition. LeaderBridge team members Danielle M. Reyes and Robyn Ellis met with the leaders in June and heard how the program supported each of their professional goals and how they are using skills and information to support a culture of progress anchored in collective care for their organizations. Leaders also shared how adaptations in nonprofits in recent years have led to new promotions, transitions, and growth opportunities for many within their organizations.
