Cultivating Leadership Through Social Change Initiatives: Broadening Our View and Support of Nonprofit Leaders


In 2008, Informing Change examined the ways in which the Community Clinics Initiative (CCI), a joint project of Tides and The California Endowment, has sought to develop and strengthen leadership in community clinics in California. Throughout the life of the Initiative, CCI has aimed to enhance the capacities of its grantees and strengthen the broader community clinics field in California.

In this brief, we use CCI’s leadership cultivation efforts to show the variety of ways in which leadership can be developed and strengthened within the nonprofit sector. Read about how leadership has been, and continues to be, cultivated within a broad social change initiative.
