Hello folks! Today we are pleased to announce that we are opening up the application for cohort 8 of the Boards and Commissions Leadership Institute (BCLI)! The BCLI is a 7 month leadership program that trains and helps place Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities on publicly appointed boards and commissions in support of a racial and economic equity agenda. Now more than over we need BIPOC voices at many decision making and policy monitoring tables!
If you are an alumni and you know someone that would be a GREAT FIT for BCLI, please nominate them. Or, if you are an organization who has someone in their network would be a good fit for the program, we welcome your nominations too – we’d love to have them participate. The application opens today, May 13th and closes Friday, June 12th, 2020 at midnight. New this year is that our application is now online! Don’t hesitate, apply now!
If you are interested in learning more about BCLI because you’re not sure what it is, please join us May 21st at 6PM for an online information session where BCLI staff and alumni will join us to answer questions. Sign up on Eventbrite and RSVP with Chai Lee via email: firstname.lastname@example.org to get a zoom link to the future info session on May 21, 2020!
