The Fulcrum Fellowship is an intensive, hands-on program designed to equip leaders with the community investment, racial equity, and adaptive leadership knowledge and skills to ignite lasting change in communities.
The Fellowship recognizes that the environments in which people live, work, and play powerfully determine the choices and opportunities they have to shape their lives. However, legacies of racial discrimination and disinvestment impede communities from realizing their environmental, social, and economic priorities. Grounded in an action-learning framework, the Fulcrum Fellowship positions leaders to collaborate across silos and sectors to change how community investment is organized and deployed.
