Management Training 2019

For the third year, the New York Capacity Building Collaborative is partnering with The Management Center to provide practical management skills training designed for social justice leaders. 

On September 10-11, The Management Center will lead a two-day “Managing with an Equity and Inclusion Lens” training. We have space for 30 people, and we’d like to invite you and your colleagues to apply! 

This training will teach a system of best practices based on those we’ve seen differentiate high-performing, equitable organizations— from aligning on clear, inclusive expectations on projects and broad responsibilities to effectively seeking and sharing feedback across lines of power, and hiring and developing a strong team. The overall aim is to provide knowledge and tools to help organizationsturn good intentions into outstanding and lasting results—through effective, equitable management.  

The training will consist of group activities, role-plays, PowerPoint presentation, individual and small group work, and audience participation. Participants will have time to apply, practice and translate the tools to their specific work contexts, and get input on core challenges from the trainer and their peers.


You should apply if:

  • You directly supervise staff, interns, or consultants in some capacity, or
  • You consistently manage others on significant projects or campaigns (even if you’re not directly supervising)
  • You’re eager to learn new tools, frameworks, and practices to support your management
  • You’re open to thinking critically and newly about your individual and organizational practices on managing with an equity and inclusion lens.

This training is free and designed for community-based nonprofit organizations including grantees of the Andrus Family Fund, Brooklyn Community Foundation, Cricket Island Foundation, Daphne Foundation, Korean American Community Foundation, Mertz Gilmore Foundation, New York Foundation, New York Women's Foundation, NYC Fund for Girls and Young Women of Color, North Star Fund, Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, Scherman Foundation, and Stonewall Community Foundation.  


Dates & Times: Tuesday, September 10th & Wednesday, September 11th, 9:30am - 5pm
