Kettering Foundation and A Race Relations Study: In partnership with the Kettering Foundation, Fielding researchers are examining race relations in the United States.
With a two-year grant from the Irvine Foundation, Fielding’s Institute for Social Innovation researchers designed a curriculum for professionals in the fields of program evaluation and organizational development that would integrated their skills in support of leadership and system change.
Supporting Men’s Work for Healing, Development, and Social Transformation is a community practice project that focuses on building a community of men at Fielding across race and sexual orientation in order to strengthen men’s development for empowering and inclusive leadership. It also is intended to create a national and international network of others engaging in this work.
