Our 56-year journey and experiences have resulted in approaches, tools and practices that reflect the needs of leaders no matter where they sit in communities.
We prepare, support, and mobilize local, state, and national leaders to develop equitable, responsive, and effective policies and practices.
We design for impact - our collaborative approach is focused on building sustainable leadership capacity that outlasts our presence, bringing multiple IEL resources to bear in targeted geographic communities and allowing us to deepen our impact.
IEL innovates while building on what works. We weave our programs, resources, and intellectual assets to maximize impact and accelerate systems change in partnership with communities.
IEL fosters cross-sector collaboration through our local, state, and national networks.
