Leading From Within recently sponsored Rosetta Thurman, a nationally recognized author, speaker and coach, who delivered poignant tips on how to excel in the nonprofit sector.

Leading From Within advances the common good by investing in people dedicated to making their communities a better place. To date, LFW programs have supported 200 nonprofit and community leaders through its Emerging Leaders, Courage to Lead and Katherine Harvey Fellows programs.

Participants included representatives from CALM, the Community Environmental Council, Direct Relief, Easy Lift Transportation, the Environmental Defense Center, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria, Just Communities, Legal Aid, the Mental Wellness Center, the Orfalea Foundation, the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition, the Santa Barbara Foundation, the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara and many others.
