REGIONAL PROGRAM

The Triangle grows by 70+ people every single day. It’s ever-changing, and we need community leaders who understand the Regional context today and are committed to shaping an equitable future tomorrow. Leadership Triangle’s Regional Program is designed with this goal in mind. Over the course of 4 months, this program develops leadership skills while connecting participants to other key leaders and issues that face the Region as a whole.

As an example, in early 2023 participants met bi-weekly over three months in different locations in the Triangle. One class involved a deep dive into the social, economic and environmental trends for the region as a whole. We experienced a full day onsite at Healing Transitions and an immersive tour of Extraordinary Ventures. In Research Triangle Park, the class met with community leaders working at the intersection of anti-racism and anti-poverty, and explored ways to create additional collaborative, multi-issue partnerships. The 2024 schedule is below.

“The Regional program was such a perfect fit for me. I really believe in the model of understanding your regional leaders and environment. The program helped me get better at promoting my interests and causes like sustainable living and inclusion.”

Cyndy Yu-Robinson, Executive Director, Kramden Institute

Key Elements of the Regional Program:

As part of the tuition fee, all participants hear from 30+ guest speakers throughout the program, representing nonprofit, public, and private sector organizations throughout the Triangle. Past speakers include Maggie Kane, Executive Director of A Place at the Table, the Mayors of Raleigh and Durham, and Eric Guckian, CEO of United Way of the Greater Triangle.
Throughout the program, participants gain rigorous data-based analysis on issues facing the Triangle. In addition, we learn and explore multiple frameworks and strategies for social change.
All participants self-select an issue area to focus on within the program. In small groups with other members of the cohort, you will engage in a community learning experience. Examples of past engagements include attending a TJCOG (Triangle J Council of Governments) working meeting, spending part of a day at a local news station, and visiting a legislator to discuss a project you feel strongly about.
