About the Program

We know that in times of devastation, crisis, and massive change that the heaviest burden is placed on BIPOC, Women and Gender Expansive, LGBTQ+, and Immigrant movement leaders to pull us through. These are leaders whose communities – and whose self – may be the most adversely impacted.

In partnership with Rockwood Leadership Institute, the Nonprofit Finance Fund, and the Kairos Fellowship, Open Society Foundation (OSF) is launching their first fellowship designed to address burnout, trauma, and a need for healing support in movement and organization leaders in the OSF grantee community.

Rockwood will curate two cohorts of OSF grantee and community leaders (staff and executives) for its Art of Navigating Change leadership development training centering the theme of resilience, with the aim to give participants the tools to shift from reactivity to a state of resourcefulness in moments of stress and crisis.

Commitment

At Rockwood, we respect that social change leaders have ambitious visions and heavy workloads, and we have designed our Art of Navigating Change with this in mind. Based on our many years of experience, we have learned that Rockwood Fellows have the most valuable experience when they can make the personal and time commitment from the start. For the Fellowship, these commitments include:
