Strengthening the Leadership Pipeline


In 2008, The Blue Shield of California Foundation partnered with the Center for the Health Professions at the University of California, San Francisco to address leadership needs in the community clinics field. They launched the Clinic Leadership Institute (CLI), an 18-month leadership program designed to prepare next generation leaders to move into executive leadership positions. Over the past two years, Informing Change has conducted an ongoing evaluation of CLI and recently completed this brief describing the CLI program as well as key findings from the inaugural cohort of the program. This brief also provides considerations for individuals and organizations that support next generation leaders.
