National Urban Fellows Calls For Leadership In Public Service

 
New York, NY –- National Urban Fellows (NUF) recently announced the release of its leadership diversity research study, Changing the Face of Public Service Leadership, and its subsequent Call to Action, which challenges national and community organizations and leaders across the country to take a leadership stand to help create a pipeline of leaders of color who are ready to step into positions of power.
 
Atlanta organizations that will heed the Call To Action are sponsoring partners, United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta and The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta Inc.  Also participating are: The Arthur Blank Foundation, Center for Black Women's Wellness, Families First, For Our Kids, Fulton County, Future Foundation Inc., Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, Georgia Center for Nonprofits, Georgia Department of Human Resources, Georgia Institute of Technology, Girls Inc. of Atlanta, Hassan Deadwyler LLC, Morehouse School of Medicine, Office of City Parks of Atlanta, Our House Inc., Raksha Inc., State of Georgia, Teach for America, and UNITED SIKHS.
 
Two critical factors have prompted the National Urban Fellows Call to Action imperative, taking place in major cities across the country.  Efforts are to create a national network of participating leaders, who will work to assure leadership opportunities for people of color and women in public service. Startling statistics, along with the recent results of the National Urban Fellows 40th Anniversary Leadership Diversity Research Report, Changing the Face of Public Service Leadership, have prompted a Call to Action.
 
In celebrating its 40th Anniversary, NUF conducted the leadership diversity research study that examines the leadership development of people of color with insights from National Urban Fellows over its 40-year history.  The research, whose findings were published in April 2010, identifies the factors that contribute to the successful leadership of people of color and women in government and non-profit sectors.
 
National Urban Fellows, founded in 1969, to address one the most important and challenging issues faced by America today – the under-representation of people of color and women in leadership, is one of the oldest and finest leadership development organizations in the U.S.   NUF is the only program in the country where individuals receive both an advanced degree and essential leadership experience.  For more information visit www.nuf.org
