Don’t want to be a leader? Here’s how to develop other career opportunities

For as long as I can remember, leadership was the expectation. If you wanted to move up in the world, you had to be a leader: in school, at work, in your extracurriculars. Leadership was the golden ticket, and the more opportunities you took, the closer you’d get to owning the whole chocolate factory.

The real reasons many organizations are still unable to diversify their board, staff, fundraising committees, etc.

Public Art: The Case for a Cultural Heart Transplant

To create public works that truly serve our shared experience, we must maintain that community organizers and city-appointed art directors are sitting at the table as peers, not outweighed by power or pedigree but rather equalized by their lived experience.

Imagine that public space put the ideas of the artist at its center, with urban transformation, public infrastructure, and civic architecture as its foundation. In such a space, creative culture would be championed by the public…

In a Time of Crisis, Business Development Organizations Step Up

Small business owners cherish their independence, but they can also use outside advice and technical assistance to be successful—or simply to survive a crisis like the pandemic. And that's where business development organizations (BDOs) come in. LISC BDO partners link their on-the-ground networks and insight with LISC’s national scale, funding and expertise to support small businesses, in the midst of COVID, and for the future.

Centering Students, Truth and Innovation

As students across the country return to school this month, the LISC Charter School Financing team reflects on the challenges facing its portfolio schools as they work to create authentically safe, empowering and anti-racist learning communities. It’s a journey that parallels are own at LISC as we enact our commitment to racial equity and justice, inclusivity and transparency.

With a LISC Small Biz Loan, a Rural Grocery Co-Op Is Building Community and Wellbeing

In recognition of Small Buiness Week, we're revisiting a vibrant project in rural Astoria, Oregon—a community of 10,000 people in the northwest corner of the state—where a co-op grocery store has adapted to the pandemic and found ways to get healthy, affordable food to residents. A LISC small business loan helped make the difference.
