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 Michelson Found Animals for their generous sponsorship that is 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 participants will gain a foundation for their journey in Animal Welfare Executive Leadership with a focus on 6 topic areas taught by experts and other industry leaders:

  • Leadership and Administration

  • Exceptional Executives and Cultural Humility

  • Emerging Leaders: Developing Others

  • Navigating Challenges

  • Collaborative Connections & Financial Management

  • Vision for the Future.

Program Dates: January 10th – June 27th, 2022
