The Leadership Development Institute is a three and a half-day, hands-on program for new

and middle managers of color. It is offered twice a year, in the spring and fall, in partnership with different media organizations and associations. Hosts and sponsors have included: Knight Ridder; The McClatchy Company; Freedom Forum; Gannett Company; Times Mirror Foundation; Newspaper Association of America; Chicago Tribune;The New York Times Company, and North Jersey Media Group.

Senior executives in the media industry help LDI participants sharpen their leadership skills and learn how to develop their careers while

successfully contributing to the goals of the organization. Through group interaction and discussion, the participants also share their experiences of trying to achieve personal and professional goals in a race-sensitive society. LDI provides an environment in which media managers of color can focus on personal and professional values plus the strengths of character and cultural traits that will enhance their positions as leaders in their organizations and communities.

Newly appointed managers and middle managers of color working in such areas as news, advertising, circulation, finance, marketing, information systems, human resources, production and operations are prime candidates for this program. For optimal learning and effective group interaction, attendance is limited to 20 participants per session.
