Level Up! is a new program that investigates the complexities, nuances and realities of the nonprofit leadership relationship between board and staff in an intimate experiential space. Organizations will participate in board and staff member pairs. Each pair will bring to the program one challenge the organization is currently facing.

Through a framework centered on power dynamics, accountability, facing resistance and fostering trust, organizations will examine their current practices and how they work to both resolve and perpetuate their challenge. Organizations will identify actionable steps from their learnings to bring back to their organization. The goal of the program is to provide tools and a learning space to rethink an old challenge through a fresh perspective.
