EMERGING LEADERS FELLOWSHIP FOR HOUSING IN THE RURAL WEST COAST

EMERGING LEADERS FELLOWSHIP FOR HOUSING IN THE RURAL WEST COAST

Planning is underway for a 2023 launch!

EMERGING LEADERS FELLOWSHIP V13_edited.jpg

The Emerging Leaders Fellowship is an 18-month leadership and affordable housing development project management training program for rural housing organizations. The Fellowship’s unique dual aim is to 1) advance the careers of BIPOC emerging leaders, especially those who may come from communities the rural affordable housing sector serves, such as low-income, rural, farmworker, bicultural, immigrant, and of other marginalized backgrounds; and 2) to build the capacity of rural housing organizations to retain them in the field. Early- to mid-career project management professionals called the Fellows, their direct managers, and the chief executives will learn in small peer cohorts, in-person and online.

Fellows will learn effective project management and how to use it to advance their careers in rural housing organizational leadership. The Fellowship’s organizational leadership curriculum will prepare all participants to think and act on behalf of the whole organization, joining them in a bond based on trust. Finally, participants from each organization will form teams to support their CEOs to create new ways of doing HR to address talent recruitment and retention.

The program is administered by CCRH, which is based in Sacramento. Host agencies are located throughout California, Washington, and Oregon.
