Project 99 - Inclusive Leadership Program in the DR
Organized by: Josuel Plasencia
Our mission is inclusive leadership.
Humans come in many shapes and sizes, but we’re all very similar at the DNA level. In fact, the genomes of any two people are more than 99% the same. - Human Genome Project
Project 99's mission is to empower the next generation of leaders, to be inclusive leaders, ones with a strong sense of diversity- especially as it deals with gender, race, socio-economic status, sexual orientation and occupation. We aim to develop leaders that focus on the 99% of our common humanity, while embracing the less than 1% that makes us different.
Our pilot program will convene a diverse set of 20 high potential young people in the Dominican Republic (Rancho Campeche - Santo Domingo) from August 1st to August 4th. In our program, we will be holding a set of workshops and leadership activity building, wholly focused on teaching inclusive leadership, and instilling a strong sense of inclusivity among our participants- that leadership does not look one way, and the human potential is not limited.
We ask for your support in making our program and the post-program follow-up possible.
