Sample Partnership Opportunities

  • Program Design and Enhancement: We help organizations conceptualize and develop programs to produce significant measurable outcomes, leverage current success into future opportunities, better meet the needs of stakeholders and constituents, and foster sustainability and growth. Our aim is to not only help organizations better achieve their missions but to make them ready and able to handle challenges in the future.
  • Workshops and Learning Sessions: RCLA's workshops marry the latest scholarly findings on effective leadership practices with the innovative approaches that emerge from the daily work of nonprofit, government and philanthropic endeavors. These immersive, interactive sessions are based on a peer-learning model, in which participants share insights with colleagues and counterparts at other organizations and ground new leadership theories and models in their own experiences.
  • Building and Supporting Networks: We develop structured convenings where leaders explore the complexity of the challenges they face and together advance their efforts to make change possible. Because tackling issues of public concern requires the engagement of actors across sectors, we convene private, government and nonprofit organizations to engage in dialogue about issues such as how to improve public schools, advance health care, preserve natural resources and protect the most vulnerable in society.
  • Technical Assistance and Training in Innovative Research Techniques: Based on RCLA's deep expertise in action learning methodologies and peer-learning, the Center offers technical assistance and training to organizations that want to incorporate ongoing learning and leadership development into their organizational cultures.
  • Fellowship Design, Implementation and Evaluation: One of RCLA's signature strengths is our expertise with fellowship design, management and evaluation. We develop and implement curricula for fellowship programs and alumni networks that not only to equip individuals with knowledge and skills, but enhance leadership in the organizations and fields where they work.
