Dear friends and colleagues,

We are excited to announce that New York Community Trust Leadership Fellows is now Leadership Fellows New York.

During our 8-year history, we have equipped and empowered nearly 400 mid-career professionals through applied learning, direct mentorship, and a lifelong community of practice. Our fellows are stepping up and taking on executive roles – making the sector more reflective of its communities and more responsive to evolving community needs and opportunities. This will continue as we now welcome 30 new fellows from local and national nonprofits.

As our fellowship evolves, we aim to provide opportunities to more nonprofit leaders. Nonprofits are experiencing a significant number of leadership transitions, especially among the more than 40,000 vital organizations in the New York metropolitan area. As we grow, we continue our commitment to building a diverse nonprofit workforce focused on systemic change and social justice.

Together, we will create an equitable sector, led by people who represent the communities they serve and who are empowered to advance social and racial justice.
