What Does The Path Of A Leader Look Like?

Leadership Development

We develop leaders by valuing lived experience - seeing and shaping the potential in those not often seen as leaders. We are transforming the face of leadership by empowering both Black leaders and non-Black allies.

Cross-Cultural Leadership

Organization Training

Our cross-cultural leadership development training is rooted in US History and local realities to build an understanding of system racism. We move ahead by employing transformational leadership strategies, mindset shifts, relationship and trust building work, measurable outcomes and accountability.

We begin with an environmental scan to inform our custom training modules and employ a dynamic evaluation process to ensure you stay on track to meet your goals. We offer an array of support services ranging from assistance with recruitment, employee retention coaching, anti-racism training, and defining organizational culture. We do this through a combination of large group education, small group discussions for processing and action planning, and executive coaching with Rev. Dr. Alexander Gee. All of these components make up our cross-cultural leadership development strategy.

Volunteer Opportunities

Many volunteers have found that Nehemiah offers cross-cultural experiences in real world settings that go beyond the surface level. We value leadership that flows from life experience and honest relational dynamics.

Preparing and Connecting Emerging African American Leaders

We provide professional development training and coaching for African American young professionals through Nehemiah’s nine-month Leadership Institute. The institute includes monthly day-long working meetings, connection with established African American professionals in the Madison area, and one-on-one career coaching with Rev. Dr. Alexander Gee. Through this training, we equip African American leaders with the distinct tools needed to lead change in our Madison, in this current moment. Cohorts are limited to 15 participants to ensure an individualized experience. Employers sponsor their employees to enroll in the Leadership Institute.

Participants work together to develop and implement community-based projects that they believe will address a community issue that they’ve collectively identified and determined to work on and is aligned with Our Madison Plan.

Got something special to say ?

A fullscreen section is a great way to present something special. The big "canvas" will deliver your message and give it full attention.

Create Impact

Fullscreen sections are great for items that need some impact. Do you have a "call to action" that needs to work better, or, perhaps a news item that can't be missed. Well, put these into a fullscreen section and you're ready to go.

Get Creative!

As you can see, there are many ways to use the fullscreen options built into Beaver Builder. And, now it's time for you to get creative and explore the possibilities.
