How narrative can shift power around who leads and who has voice.

This six article series for Stanford Social Innovation Review—presented in partnership with Metropolitan Group, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and other organizations involved in the Beyond the Hero leadership initiative—explores the social sector’s need to broaden its narrative of leadership so that it supports leadership in all its complex, dynamic forms.

The first article in the series explores The Need for More Inclusive Leadership Narratives. Authors: Deborah Bae, Kiernan Doherty and contributors: Ericka Stallings, Dana D’Orazio and Nikka Landau discuss why social change organizations must ensure that their systems, policies, cultures, and behaviors align with a broader concept of leadership that centers equity and justice and encompasses leadership in all its forms.

Our collective of thought leaders from a wide variety of organizations have been learning alongside one another to generate this incredible offering. We hope you will share this ongoing series with your communities and let us know what learnings and takeaways are resonating with you.
