Louisiana Commission for the Deaf (LCD)

Louisiana Deaf Leadership Development Program Launched

The Louisiana Commission for the Deaf (LCD) has announced its inaugural Louisiana Deaf Leadership Development Program (LD2). This program seeks to connect, inspire, and empower Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing Louisianans. Through Deaf-centric, transformative programming, LD2 will equip participants with the resources, network, and support to build on their skills as they continue to dive deeper into their leadership experience and impact on the Louisiana community.

Facilitated by Innivee Strategies, LD2 is a free, cohort-based program intended for Deaf people who are relatively early on in their leadership journey. This 10-month program will bring together a cohort of 10-12 peers. As the first LCD Leadership Development program, YOU have an opportunity to contribute to this significant first step, as well as become a role model to other Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing participants who seek to become leaders, too.

Innivee Strategies is excited to support this important project and the overall advancement of Deaf leadership within the State of Louisiana. We recognize the significant progress in Louisiana thanks to the work of LCD and other Deaf-related advocacy organizations, and we look forward to continuing this transformation through the LD2 Program.

If you are an emerging leader with several years of leadership experience, whether at work, in a volunteer role, or in sports, we hope you will apply!
