CalAnimals
EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

The CalAnimals Executive Leadership Program (CAELP) is a critically important initiative to build a pipeline of executives prepared to step into the CEO role. We extend our sincere gratitude to our sponsors Michelson Found AnimalsMaddie's Fund, and, Wallis Annenberg PetSpace for so generously making this program possible. With many seasoned leaders retiring, we are looking for individuals who are readying themselves to take on these roles in the near future that could use the knowledge and support of known leaders to help navigate their career path. This program is also open to CEOs/Directors new to their role who wish to improve their leadership skills and ensure their approach will yield the best outcomes.

CAELP participants will leave with a strong foundation that will support their personal and professional development with resources, coaching, and best practices shared in a collaborative learning environment.

 

The 2024 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
