With your donation, leaders in our Valley will continue to develop, and be supported, and go on to tackle complex community challenges in cooperative, equitable, and democratic ways.
Progress becomes possible through leadership. Leadership depends on engaging and energizing multiple stakeholders, diagnosing the situation, framing discourse, discovering common purpose, and experimenting with ways to intervene to make progress (Steffensmeier & Chrislip, 2019). Developing this kind of leadership is itself a monumental task requiring a concerted effort to debunk existing conceptions and learn anew to shift the focus from leaders and followers to developing the capacity of social systems to respond to challenges.
