Leadership Academy

The Leadership Institute is a collaborative, multifaceted initiative with a goal to increase the number and capacity of leaders to advance and sustain cultural and linguistic competence and respond to the growing cultural diversity among people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the United States, its territories, and tribal communities.

The Leadership Academy is designed to develop and enhance knowledge and skills for leadership that is directed toward change within the social-cultural contexts of the I/DD network. The Academy is intended to support individuals currently or interested in assuming leadership to advance and sustain cultural diversity and cultural and linguistic competence (CLC) within their respective settings.
