EMERGING LEADERS PROGRAM

The CalAnimals Emerging Leaders Program (CAELP) is a critically important initiative to support the next generation of animal welfare leaders. We extend our sincere gratitude to presenting sponsors, Michelson Found Animals and Maddie's Fund, and supporting sponsor, Wallis Annenberg PetSpace for so generously making this program possible. By providing tools, teaching techniques to lead with compassion, and providing a collaborative environment for networking, participants of CAELP will leave with a strong foundation to support their personal and professional development.

 

The 2023 participants will gain a foundation for their journey in Animal Welfare

Executive Leadership as they focus on 6 topic areas taught by experts and other

industry leaders:

  • Career moves: Preparing for Your Next Role

  • Building and Maintaining an Effective Team: Workplace Culture, Staff Development 

  • Fundraising and Financial Management

  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) and Cultural Humility 

  • Leading Change and Navigating Challenges 

  • Nonprofit vs. Government Shelters: Structure, Differences, Tips for Success, Working with Boards 

  • Data Driven Decisions and the Future of Animal Welfare

Program Dates: January 27th – June 30th, 2023
