New Leaders Council is building a coalition of leaders from business, finance, media, education, science and technology, politics and government, and the non-profit sector into a progressive network. Until recently the only way to access our progressive entrepreneurship training program was as a Fellow.


 The NLC Training Academy is focused on building communities and training progressives through partnerships and targeted workshops. See below about partnership opportunities and trainings near you.
