If you want to know who are some of the best-and-brightest, up-and-coming trans leaders in LGBTQ philanthropy, look no further than our inaugural cohort of Grantmakers United for Trans Communities (GUTC) Leadership Development Fellows!
Created to respond to the urgent unmet need for leadership development and support for trans, gender non-conforming, and non-binary staff in philanthropy, GUTC’s Leadership Development Fellowship will provide ongoing support, peer networking, and professional development to its fellows over a 12-month period, beginning in April 2018.
While we initially anticipated supporting a cohort of only six fellows, the response to our call for applications was overwhelming. As a result, we are stretching our resources to support seven fellows this first year! “I’m so appreciative of and inspired by the immense interest in our GUTC Leadership Development Fellowship,” said Alexander Lee, Project Director for Grantmakers United for Trans Communities. “I want to thank everyone who applied and our hardworking Fellows Selection Committee. While we could only accept seven, we hope the many others who applied will consider applying again next year. This is only the first of many cohorts to come as we work to to inspire a philanthropic culture that is inclusive and supportive of trans people through grantmaking and decision-making.”
Selected after a rigorous process, we’re thrilled to announce our inaugural class of our Grantmakers United for Trans Communities Leadership Development Fellows!
