What is LEAD:Louisiana?
Every citizen, no matter where they live or what their circumstances, has an equal right to a quality education. We believe great entrepreneurial leadership can transform teaching and learning, enabling the highest quality education experiences for all. Partners is launching a leadership development initiative in July 2013 to recruit, select, develop, and mentor high-potential minority leaders in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
After an extensive recruitment process followed by a rigorous selection process, up to 20 high-potential minority entrepreneurial leaders will become the first cohort of fellows. Beginning in November 2013, fellows will embark on a 15-month intensive leadership develop program. The curriculum and experiential learning experiences provided in the program will adhere to Partners’ Leadership Framework for Developing Minority Leaders of High-Quality Public Schools.
