Meet the HPDL class of 2016!
Our 2016 High Potential Diverse Leaders (HPDL) cohort kicked off recently with 27 new up-and-comers in the nonprofit and philanthropic world.
Presented by GCN in partnership with American Express, High Potential Diverse Leaders is our annual leadership development program designed to provide the rising stars of nonprofit organizations with the skills needed to assume executive-level responsibilities within the sector.
The annual HPDL program experience offers an immersive and enriching experience of training, access, and interaction with nonprofit leaders and opportunities, helping emerging leaders build fundamental leadership skills as they develop their peer networks and support systems.
The first session explored Finding the Leader in You, an overview of the program, including expectations and requirements; key challenges and happenings in the current nonprofit environment; an introduction to fellow participants; and an overview of leadership and what it means to be a leader.
Read about the experience, highlighted in this NOW article, Finding the Leader in You.
We are so excited to meet our newest nonprofit superstars and watch as they grow into nonprofit leaders!
