About Us

Maven Leadership Collective is an ideas lab that harnesses the power of diversity and belonging to build resilient communities that thrive in the face of crisis, transition, and tragedy. We specialize in inspiring talented change agents who are at a critical juncture in their careers or in the lifecycle of the organizations seeking to create solutions that drive performance and promote sustainability.

Maven launched our signature leadership development program in 2017. We scaled our program to include Orlando in 2018 to support communities impacted by the Pulse tragedy and Hurricane Maria. Graduates of our program directly improve the quality of life for more than 200,000 people annually in Central and South Florida.

Based on our impact, Maven has been invited to conduct professional development training and consulting across the country. Maven Leadership Collective is the only social impact organization in Florida that is singularly dedicated to centering queer and trans people of color in leadership development and strengthening organizations by using an intersectional approach to capacity-building. Our governance structure reflects our mission as it is 100% people of color, 70% queer, 50% women, and 50% under the age of 40.
