Supporting Leaders, Supporting Movements

Effective social change leaders operate in three different but overlapping spheres: their organization, their movement, and across movements. Some of them make this look easy, but in reality “for even the most gifted and dedicated leaders, this can feel overwhelming and lead to missed opportunities. At worst, it can contribute to burn out.”

The Walter and Evelyn Haas Jr. Fund’s Flexible Leadership Awards (FLA) supports selected grantees’ with resources for more effective leadership, and invariably stronger movements. This video highlights the awardees’ experience, and the need for more leadership support for social changemakers. In just six minutes, learn how they navigate their challenges as leaders, and how the support they’ve received has changed them, their organizations, and their movements for the better.
