Isolated leaders are a barrier to effective community problem-solving. Our region has a number of leadership hubs and networks that struggle to build and maintain connections among their members. Very little has been done to build connections across these groups. That’s where Pollen can think bigger, think differently, and spark regional transformation.
Through a balance of immersive in-person experiences, network-building, and story-driven online engagements, Pollen and any of its selected partners will educate, empower, and engage as catalysts for community-building and creative change agents, with the goal of creating personal and professional growth for their members and an improved quality of life for all people living in the region the Bush Foundation serves. —Jennifer Ford Reedy, president of the Bush Foundation
