CRAVE Leader Certificate Program

First, food meets our craving and fills the soul when shared with friends. Shabbat. Iftar. Eucharist. Food is the manifestation of the overlapping space between sacred/secular.

Second, skills that emerging leaders need, have, and want more of are agreed upon by the group. Throughout the year, the group will field trip, meet amazing people, and be exposed to resources that will expand and deepen the toolbox for their work.

Skills Like These:
Welcome | Funding | Being | Innovation | Scaling | Overcoming | Leading

Third, network is critical when raising funds, expanding a non-profit, recruiting volunteers, or taking it to the next level. Crave offers intimate, relevant connections to a pool of community learning partners who deeply desire to "elder" the next generation of leaders and their projects by asking loving and thoughtful questions.

Fourth, sacred community with amazing people of passion, knowledge, commitment, and inspired leadership is built on authenticity, vulnerability, and shared values. In this space, Crave explores who we are, why we're here, and all about that Something More that drives, inspires, frustrates, and elevates. Sacred community is a safe place to unpack what we've been given about the Divine, why it works or doesn't, and potentially piece together a new view/language/paradigm that does resonate with today, our leadership, and the work we're called to do.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
