The North Star Center for Collaborative Leadership was launched by ICL in 2019 in honor of the life and legacy of Frederick Douglass.
The Leadership Center represents a lifetime ambition for ICL founder, Hank Rubin. Old enough to have walked Joseph Avenue during the racial protests that stirred Rochester NY during the summer of 1964, Hank vowed to return to his hometown to help it become an authentic model of racial equity, building its capacity one-leader-at-a-time!
ICL established the North Star Center for Collaborative Leadership "to support and strengthen the individual and collective capacity and impact of antiracism and anti-hate leaders – particularly those in civic, community and nonprofit roles that can contribute to building strong children and families …” in Rochester NY, the city Frederick Douglass also called "home".
Dedicated to developing effective, collaborative, accountable, antiracist nonprofit, community & government leaders ... helping Rochester's leaders develop their community as a national model of racial equity.
The Center actively partners with Rochester NY regional leaders associated with human services, public housing, children's and education policy, reparations, racism, poverty and the region's historic philharmonic orchestra.
We work with small & large organizations, experienced & rising leaders ... our work is timely, timeless & transformational.
The Center's Leadership Training Academies for youth, college students, and active community and nonprofit leaders has not yet been launched ... watch for it!!
