Emerging Community Leaders to Join 2nd Annual Institute.
The Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta Leadership Institute (ISBLI), in partnership with CIFAL Atlanta, trains and cultivates civic leaders who create positive and constructive changes within communities and add value in the public square. Beginning on January 11, 2019, the 17-member class will participate in a nine-month program with sessions including personal and organizational leadership skill-building, communication, advocacy, inclusion and conflict resolution. Each session will be facilitated by top non-profit and corporate leaders, with panel discussions and interactive learning. The class will have opportunities to practically apply their new skills through developing and implementing a service project for a community-based organization.
“The ISBLI Class of 2020 is a group of exceptional leaders who already make a difference in our community,” said Soumaya Khalifa, ISB executive director. “By providing them with opportunities to engage with some of Atlanta’s most respected leaders, we know that they will gain skills and confidence and will contribute even more to improving our society. ”
