Are you ready for transformational change?

Today’s challenges require local leaders who unite people around our shared humanity and inspire engagement in community-based solutions.

A deepening awareness of racial and economic injustice is fueling a growing desire for authentic change throughout our society. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) Community Leadership Network with the Center for Creative Leadership® is an innovative fellowship that supports local leaders to connect, grow and lead transformational change toward a more equitable society.

The WKKF Foundation Community Leadership Network aims to capitalize on the energy of this moment by launching class three of its unique fellowship program in the foundation’s priority places within the United States: Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico and New Orleans this fall. The application for class three closed April 10, 2023. Thank you to everyone who applied! We are currently reviewing applications, and are excited to announce the next class early summer.

Leadership in Action

Over 18+ months, class two fellows from Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, New Orleans and across the country came together to grow as individuals and as a unified community. The WKKF Community Leadership Network fellowship helped them take their passion, commitment and work to the next level. See the highlights and impacts from their leadership journey.

“Being in this fellowship has really opened the door. We are a powerful group of wonderful human beings who are in this to learn as many tools as we can, to have the leadership that is going to really be a positive way for others – and for ourselves – to get this right about humanity.”

— Reena Evers-Everette, class two fellow
