Religious Leaders Cohort

The religious leaders cohort is a place for both professionals and non-professionals involved in leadership of a religious practice or community to come and share resources, support one another through challenges, and dig deep for the advanced interfaith work we know many of you are doing and want to do. We are defining religion, spirituality, and leadership widely to encompass the full breadth of incredible things IA Emerging Leaders are doing. If you are wondering if this is the right cohort for you, know that it probably is!
