Blue Shield of California Foundation – Clinic Leadership Institute
Clinic Leadership Institute (CLI), a signature program of Blue Shield of California Foundation (BSCF), focuses on strengthening leadership in California’s community health centers field. CLI offers intensive, experiential instruction and supports (e.g., seminars, customized leadership projects, peer networking) through its Emerging Leaders, Executive Excellence, New Executive Transitions and CLI alumni programs.
BSCF engages Informing Change to conduct a multi-tiered evaluation of CLI’s effectiveness and impact on participating individuals and teams, their organizations and the broader health centers field. Informing Change’s evaluation incorporates mixed methods, engages multiple perspectives and tracks impacts over time to promote learning about leadership development and organizational effectiveness.
CLI is one of few programs of its kind; because of this, Informing Change’s findings help improve not only CLI itself, but also contribute to a strong and vibrant community health centers field.
