Good leadership always seems to be in short supply. There are plenty of situations where nobody is willing to lead, and there are plenty of others where those who are leading aren’t quite as fit for the job as they should be. I’ve seen a lot of non-profits that focus on developing young people into leaders, but it’s not all that common to find an organization devoted to promoting leadership at all levels. That’s exactly what Leadership Greater Washington does. They are a Washington, DC based non-profit that was founded out of The Greater Washington Board of Trade, The Eugene and Agnes E. Meyer Foundation and The Junior League. Its goal is to “foster communication and cooperation among the area’s established leaders” and to aid “leaders in every stage of their leadership journey.”
Leadership Greater Washington has four core programs: Class Year (their signature program), Effective Leadership Institute, Rising Leaders, and Youth Leadership Greater Washington. Each focuses on promoting leadership for a different group of people. Additionally, Leadership Greater Washington puts on a number of events every year. I like how the organization is only focused on a small metro area because it makes all of their programs and events more approachable for leaders who are early in their “leadership journeys.” If you like what Leadership Greater Washington is doing, take a look at their jobs on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for an Administrative Assistant. It’s a great opportunity to get involved with all parts of the organization.
