Local nonprofit leader selected for Allstate Greater Good Leadership Program
Lauren Peterson, Executive Director at Women’s Resources of Monroe County, is one of 30 nonprofit leaders nationwide selected for the elite Allstate Foundation Greater Good Nonprofit Leadership Program. Peterson will participate in three, in-person sessions, and receive executive one-on-one coaching and funding for an individual developmental learning opportunity.
Since 2014, The Allstate Foundation has offered the Greater Good Nonprofit Leaders Program to highly motivated nonprofit professionals who want to take their leadership skills to the next level. Created in partnership with the prestigious Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management’s Center for Nonprofit Management, the unique opportunity provides a combination of cohort-based academic instruction, one-on-one executive coaching and individual development opportunities outside the classroom. Leaders emerge from the Greater Good program positioned to further transform their organizations, their communities and the nonprofit sector as a whole.
The program provides leaders with a values-based approach to leadership development. Through collaborative learning, inspired conversations, and one-on-one coaching, leaders emerge with a new sense of readiness for the challenges ahead. It teaches leadership competency from a theoretical perspective, as well as by examining case studies and practicing skills in small group simulations and creates a supportive learning environment in which nonprofit leaders may pursue the development opportunities most important to them.
