Leadership Quest Recruitment


Each year, LMR accepts a diverse group of community leaders into its flagship program, Leadership Quest. Through a ten-month program — which includes formal community leadership training, access to high-impact decision-makers, and networking opportunities to name a few — these individuals develop the necessary framework to make a positive and lasting impact in the greater Richmond Region. Join us for a virtual conversation with the selection committee chair as well as select LMR alumni who will share about their experience in the program and the application process. We hope you will consider applying for the Class of 2021.

Join us for a workshop with one of the country’s top equity and diversity educators as we work to create change in a world that pays special attention to race, gender, socio-economic status, and other general classifications of the population. We can only transform systems when we are conscious to the current conditions of our culture as well as the history that shaped them. Get ready to move from words to action as this session both challenges and equips you to put knowledge into practice towards equity.

Convening Leaders Second Topic


In a time when we are all being asked to stay home to protect both ourselves and others, how do you stay home when you have no home?  With a lack of available beds in shelters, insufficient affordable housing, and a growing number of individuals with complex needs facing homelessness already existing prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, this public health and economic crisis has only further exacerbated the variety of challenges many across the Richmond Region are facing when it comes to housing stability. Local media has been covering a rise in funding to provide temporary shelter for the homeless population, but this a short-term fix to a long-term issue with ripple effects that we as community leaders should be considering.  Join us in a virtual discussion with Kelly King Horne ’11 (Executive Director, Homeward) to learn how a history of cross-sector collaboration, government funding, and resources from local organizations are being used to tackle the immediate needs of our homeless population.  We will also discuss what more long-term solutions could look like as the risks and barriers that accompany the challenge of homelessness become more evident for all to see.
