CNJG is pleased to offer this webinar designed by our colleague Philanthropy Serving Organizations from three Midwest states. Together, they hope to harness and share the collective expertise of each state’s leading philanthropic organizations and trusted community partners.

Join the staff of CFLeads as they share insights about the practice of community leadership from the collective knowledge of the community foundation field.

The Framework for Community Leadership, developed by CFLeads, is a framework designed and refined by practitioners in order to help community foundations better understand and practice community leadership. In this conversation, CFLeads will begin with an introduction to the framework before diving deeper into one of the building blocks of the framework to demonstrate application techniques in your own leadership work.

In the second half of the webinar, you’ll learn how CF Insights’ new Community Leadership Assessment Tool provides a set of detailed indicators to help community foundations better work across several dimensions of community leadership:

“The Community Leadership Assessment Tool focuses on foundations’ engagement in community leadership activities, including their commitment to community leadership work and a self-assessment of their foundation’s performance on these activities. Its development was informed by conversations among community foundations who desired a structured mechanism to assess their community leadership activities and communicate the impact of their work beyond financial metrics.”

You’ll also hear from fellow community foundations and learn how they’ve used the Framework and the Assessment Tool in their own work. There will be plenty of time for peer sharing, reflection and questions. Join us as we refine our community leadership practice together!
