CompassPoint’s Next Generation Leaders of Color (NGLC) program in Los Angeles this year


The application period for a new cohort of our Next Generation Leaders of Color (NGLC) Program is now open. We’re excited to announce that with generous support from The California Wellness Foundation, we are bringing the Next Generation Leaders of Color program to Los Angeles this year!


Now in its sixth year, NGLC is a transformative leadership development program that builds leadership confidence, management competencies, and the ability to unleash organizational change.

CompassPoint has designed this program specifically for leaders of color committed to working with their community peers to drive social change.
