Building Equitable Leadership
Linking Leaders is a new initiative from F. R. Bigelow Foundation created to assess and understand the gaps between leaders of color and leadership opportunities across sectors within the East Metro.
The Linking Leaders Initiative also seeks to identify strategies and best practice models to create connections and strengthen linkages amongst leaders of color, leadership networks, and leadership programs across sectors.

Identify strategies and best practice models to create connections and strengthen linkages amongst leaders of color, leadership networks, and leadership programs across sectors within the East Metro, including current F. R. Bigelow current grantees
Create and implement strategies which will influence organizational and systems change in order to ensure there are pipelines for leaders of color to enter leadership roles across sectors
Implement a program model which funds and supports entities which create the connections and linkages identified above
Share these learnings with the broader community, through Linking Leaders reports, strategies and frameworks
