Taking Action Together
Collaborative Leadership in Practice (CLiP) was a two-year bilingual project to strengthen collaborative, equitable and inclusive leadership in the non-profit sector —specifically in the context of partnerships and networks.
- Increase knowledge and understanding of processes and policies that centre equity-seeking communities in leadership and decision-making.
- Develop organizational skills to implement equitable leadership, based on promising practices from partnerships/networks across Ontario.
- Facilitate a culture shift which recognizes the need to examine and redistribute power and resources to achieve more collective and equitable practices.
The project began in March 2015 and wrapped-up in March 2017.
Below is a list of CLiP project advisory members who contributed significant leadership to CLiP plans and activities. Some of these advisory members – Denise (LHION), Joëlle (Nourish), Tong (CAWI), Odette (Oasis) and Maureen (CAAT) – represent the five partnerships/networks with a commitment to decentering power and applying anti-oppression frameworks who also shared their stories, approaches/policies/procedures and current challenges towards the co-creation of new Ontario-based knowledge and tools.
In addition, regional gatherings were organized in collaboration with local hosts who together offered strong and diverse leadership to the regional event preparations and programs.
We deeply appreciate the energy, wisdom and commitment of all the individuals and organizations who contributed to the leadership of the CLiP project – both the original advisory members and other leaders who joined in later for the work of specific learning events and/or tool and resource production.
