Maven Leadership Impact Report

Increasingly, Maven Leadership Collective has become a recognized community resource for those who care about building communities where everyone can thrive. We know that is–in large part–due to the incredible work that you and the other extraordinary social impact leaders in our growing community of Mavens are doing each and every day. We are grateful for the opportunity to learn from you and for your role as ambassadors of the program.

It is our pleasure to share with you our first impact report, Maven Rising, detailing Maven’s efforts over the past three years. Moving forward, we will share this report each year as the centerpiece of our impact storytelling. So, please share your challenges and triumphs with us so that we may elevate them. We would like to thank Maven Ana Mantica for her stewardship of this process.
