By advancing the development of nonprofit leaders of diverse backgrounds and increasing the participation of women and girls in leadership roles and civic engagement, we realize the full potential of our nation.
LeaderBridge is a program with three components:
1) Partnering with leadership program providers to integrate equity and inclusion practices and increase outreach to nonprofit leaders underrepresented in sector leadership.
2) Connecting nonprofit leaders of color to professional development opportunities.
3) Supporting a network of engaged nonprofit leaders of diverse backgrounds.
When women are in positions of power, economies and societies thrive. When women achieve representation, they exert positive influence and build power that combats structural barriers. Programs that support the leadership of women and girls are critical to our community flourishing.
At the Crimsonbridge Foundation, we are committed to building the power of women and girls and increasing their representation in leadership positions to engender systemic change.
Since 2016, 81 diverse local nonprofit leaders have advanced their professional skills with support from the Crimsonbridge Foundation. Leaders report they were able to immediately implement their learning to advance their organizations and community – cultivating board members, implementing staff trainings, improving finance and development structures, revising communications systems, enhancing evaluation processes, and more.
