Please read the following message before proceeding with your Leadership L.A. 2021 Application

Thank you for your interest in applying to participate in Leadership L.A. Class of 2021. In SCLN’s 30+ years, we have continually assessed the format and content of our programs to ensure they reflect current adult learning best practices, trends and issues shaping the region, and relevant leadership development skills. In this time of rapid change, SCLN is again reimagining it’s programming to ensure fellows continue to receive the shared learning, relationship building and partnership development experience that is unique to SCLN’s programs. 

What you can you expect from Leadership L.A. 2021 Programming:

SCLN will continue to…
  • Deliver leadership skill development focused on collaboration; breaking down silos; and preparing you to provide leadership to your team, and in your organization and the community during volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous times.
  • Highlight the trends, issues and challenges shaping Los Angeles County to help you become a more informed and engaged leader.
  • Facilitate networking opportunities across industries and sectors to increase your systems of support and broaden your collaboration opportunities.
  • Provide in-person, experiential learning opportunities to observe solutions to our region’s challenges in action.

SCLN is improving programming by…
  • Moving some seminars into the virtual learning space, in order to increase access to expert speakers and fellows who otherwise would be unable to participate in our programs. In the short-term, this also ensures social distancing in our efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
  • Looking at trends and issues more holistically and from the context of place.
  • Taking a deeper dive into the historical and systemic roots of Los Angeles County challenges and issues.
Leadership L.A. 2021 is an 8-month program and will be held from March to October 2021. The program begins with a two-day mandatory orientation on March 11 & 12 and ends with a graduation ceremony and reception in October 2021. Seminars will consist of both virtual and in-person sessions (in compliance with state and local COVID-19 guidelines) throughout L.A. County. More information about seminar dates and times will be provided to each candidate prior to the scheduling of interviews.
