ICMA Launches a New Leadership Institute on Race and Equity

Introducing the ICMA/Kettering Foundation/NCL Leadership Institute on Race, Equity, and Inclusion

Dec 1, 2020 | ARTICLE

As a thought leader, ICMA is committed to creating and supporting thriving communities. As part of this commitment, ICMA has created, in partnership with the Kettering Foundation and the National Civic League, the Leadership Institute on Race, Equity, and Inclusion. The institute supports the ICMA Executive Board’s statement regarding systemic racism, and more specifically the commitment to:


“Engage our members and partners in a process of listening to understand what our profession needs in order to deliver on the work of our mission and vision through the lens of equity and inclusion.”

The institute will offer local government participants interactive learning, superlative instructors, networking with colleagues, and engaging discussions of the key leadership issues surrounding racial equity. Participants will embark on a 12-18-month journey to transform themselves, their community, and the local government profession into something greater than it was when they started.

Applicants should be ICMA member managers or assistant managers. Visit the website to learn more about this new leadership institute and apply. And plan to join us Tuesday, December 15, at 12:30 PM ET for an information session. Register for the Zoom session here. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
