NYSUT Pathways to Leadership

Members of Color Network

We are now accepting applications for the NYSUT Pathways to Leadership, a project to support NYSUT BIPOC members who strive to own their power and strengthen their skills to take on leadership roles within their union, workplace, or community. Throughout the year, participants will learn new skills, create community and experience mentorship to achieve their personal leadership goals.

The project takes participants through a series of meetings, reflections, readings and discussions over the course of the year. We will adapt the content of the program based on the interests and needs this cohort identifies in our first meeting, so the work is tailored to individual participants.

The program will culminate with the creation of a leadership project and mentorship opportunities for those who are interested.
