The Connecting Communities Coalition has become aware of the great need for leadership development opportunities in the disability community. Because the cross-disability community is a diverse group of individuals, the Coalition sought to create a curriculum that provides the accommodations, support, and flexibility needed for people with disabilities to access leadership development programs.
The Connecting Communities Leadership Academy will cover a broad range of technical and theoretical topics, including study of great leaders, team building, effective communication, ethics, and public speaking. We welcome individuals with any kind of limitation to join our inaugural class and become the next community leaders, advocates, board members, or valuable employee.
All classes except the last class will be held at the Portland Business Alliance building located at 200 SW Market St, Portland, OR. The last class will be held at NW Natural Gas located at 220 NW 2nd Ave, Portland, OR. Our curriculum is designed to accommodate many different learning styles and abilities, ensuring that no matter what your challenges are, you are able to fully participate.
