Management & Leadership Institute
The Management & Leadership Institute (MLI) strengthens the leadership and management capacity of grantee partners through a series of no-fee participatory workshops and trainings on issues such as fundraising, board development, financial management, and communications. Workshops and trainings typically range in length from a half-day to a series of full-day sessions and are facilitated by technical assistance providers who tailor each workshop to the needs of the participants. Individual follow-up consultations are often conducted at the end of each series.
