Leadership Council is pleased to announce its BOLD 5 class, the most diverse cohort since the program’s inception in 1991. “BOLD 5 is the result of great efforts to create more equitable and inclusive nonprofit boards. We are increasing the accessibility of nonprofit board training throughout our city," said Jenny Berg, Executive Director of Leadership Council for Nonprofits. The BOLD 5 class roster is available on Leadership Council for Nonprofit’s website. Click here to read the full story.

BOLD Spotlight
The BOLD program is led by a great group of alumni and community leaders. As we grow to 4 classes in 2021, the strength of the program is equivalent to the quality of members of the BOLD steering committee. The members come from all sectors & span generations of classes. Take a look at our steering committee and give them a round of applause. Interested in joining reach out to us at bold@leadershipcouncil.us.
