TWO-DAY LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

The EVC Leadership Academy is a two-day intensive during which leaders of color will receive training in the Breakthrough Action Leadership (BAL) framework, foster peer connections, and, upon completion, have an opportunity to apply for EVC’s more immersive training opportunities. 

Through the two-day leadership academy, leaders will:

  1. Reflect on the myths (and facts) of effective leadership.  

  2. Identify what is and isn’t working about their leadership practices and explore strategies to adopt in moments of stress, challenges, and/or when “feeling stuck”

  3. Foster community with other leaders of color thereby strengthening the financial health ecosystem and be invited to an online community for ongoing engagement and resources.

  4. Cultivate clarity on how to increase their effectiveness and sphere of influence thereby shifting power.

  5. Empower themselves and each other by debunking harmful narratives and establishing new paradigms for understanding and connecting with their leadership abilities.
