Where are you leading? Who are you leading? How are you doing it?
You could be leading thousands in a dance at a retreat or leading yourself to speak truth to power. Leadership doesn’t look one way and doesn’t always involve a crowd, but in order to lead your way, you do have to have a vision.
The Dreams Liberation Fund (DLF) was established by Liberated Development in 2021 with that sole purpose in mind: to be a pathway for emerging leaders of color to liberate their dreams.
We believe that leaders who are more connected to what it means to activate their dreams will accelerate progress toward creating more conscious and intentional workplace cultures that make space for the unique identities and contributions of others to emerge and thrive.
The DLF offers a path for people of color to (re)connect to your dreams and to experience what it means to have someone invest in that dream in a way that pushes you to action.
A dream becomes reality when the dreamer is liberated enough to pursue it.
As a certified Dream Management Program™ organization, we know that dreams liberate. And while, in theory, anyone can dream, our ability to pursue (and sometimes to even access) our dreams is in direct relationship to how we've been socialized within our intersectional identities.
As Liberated Development continues to offer multiple pathways for leaders to experience their own version of liberation, we offer this annual opportunity to an emerging leader of color. To explore what it truly means to take action toward the leadership dream you have, and to receive financial and community support as you do!
We are invested in more liberated futures for leaders of color.
