Tagged with: bursary leadership AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 Pilotlight is offering 12 more bursaries for charity leaders this year.Under its charity leader to charity coaching model, which it trialled last year, Pilotlight is offering twelve charity leaders the chance to develop their leadership and coaching skills whilst ‘paying it forward’ to another charity by coaching them to be more effective and sustainable.Funding has been secured for 12 more bursaries this year to enable charity leaders to participate free of charge. Each recipient will work within a team of four senior leaders from public and private sector organisations to advise another charity on everything from finance and governance to helping it to increase its impact.  The process tests leaders’ skills on real time strategic issues: learning that they can then take back to their own organisations.The Pilotlight bursaries are designed for charity CEOs or leaders of major divisions within larger charities wanting to extend and develop their skills beyond their usual environment, and also offer the opportunity for senior, experienced fundraisers to get a broader organisational overview of another charity. Applications open today (11 March) and are expected to close on 7 April. Leaders can register their interest via the Pilotlight site.Last year, the trial programme received many applications from leaders who had previously received coaching from Pilotlight and who wanted to give back to another charity.Pilotlighter Iain Morrison, Chief Executive of Revive MS Support said:“Leadership is about learning and sharing. It is very easy in our sector to become insular but this involvement has reinforced for me the impact and importance of the 3rd sector in delivering needful and professional services. It has been a real joy being involved as a Pilotlighter, it has reminded me again of the significant impact the Pilotlight process has had on the organisation I lead, and the positive effect it has had on our growth and development since then.”Gillian Murray, Chief Executive of Pilotlight, said: Advertisement New Pilotlight bursaries available for charity leaderscenter_img “Since 2003, Pilotlight’s work has helped over 700 charities. In the process, our business members overwhelmingly report improved leadership and coaching skills from being exposed to external challenges and from sharing different perspectives with fellow coaches and partner charities. That’s why we’re keen to offer this development opportunity to successful leaders within the third sector.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Black Lives Matter: A next chapter

first_imgFour years after Michael Brown was shot to death by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., young people of color are still dying. Still, as a panel discussion at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum noted on Monday, a movement has grown at the same time.With a new documentary shedding light on Brown’s life and the subsequent Black Lives Matter movement, the national focus has turned to basic human and Civil Rights issues broached by his death — and the killings of Trayvon Martin, Stephon Clark, Philando Castile, and others — that society is being called on to tackle.The Institute of Politics (IOP) panel discussion followed a screening of that documentary, “Stranger Fruit,” by filmmaker Jason Pollock. Pollock was joined by Benjamin Crump, attorney for the families of Brown, Martin, and Clark; Lezley McSpadden, Brown’s mother; and Jasmine Reed, attorney for the families of Brown and Martin.The discussion was moderated by Khalil Muhammad, professor of history, race, and public policy at the Kennedy School (HKS), and Ashley Spillane, Roy and Lila Ash Student Fellow, Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, which co-sponsored the event with the HKS Black Student Union, HKS Arts and Culture Caucus, and the IOP’s Politics of Race and Ethnicity program.The documentary, explained Pollock, began when he moved to Ferguson after hearing what had happened to Brown. Coming from Los Angeles, he said, “I didn’t see anyone talking about the case of Mike Brown, and that felt like the most important thing.”Once he began to work on the film in 2013, its story deepened. “We wanted to show more of the context of what was happening in Ferguson,” said Pollack. “We talked a lot about the city of St. Louis,” where the so-called “race riots” of 1917 resulted in the deaths of more than 40 people of color, and possibly many more.“Our country was built on genocide and slavery,” he said.Reed said the film “did an incredible job of bringing you critical evidence of evidence that was concealed from the general public.”“We are hoping it will change the hearts of people,” said McSpadden.,Available on iTunes and video on demand on cable, “Stranger Fruit” will make its television debut on the Starz network on June 18. Pollock is also bringing it to various film festivals and is looking for a wider commercial release. A portion of the proceeds go to supporting Brown’s family.At the heart of Brown’s case, the panel agreed, is racism. Pollock’s film explores the history of this prejudice and points out the discrepancies in the evidence and treatment of this particular case.Crump stressed the importance of discerning the pattern in this treatment. To highlight the racism inherent in what he called all the “hashtags” since Brown, Crump pointed out the difference between these cases and the recent ones of the Parkland and Waffle House shooters, in which white suspects were apprehended alive.“White murderers are given more consideration than black unarmed men,” he said.To tackle these issues, Rand said the best way forward is a multidisciplinary approach.“We’re here because being an attorney is not enough,” Rand said. “That’s why we’re in the courtroom. That’s why Jason had to make his documentary. That’s why you’re here at the University.”Crump directed concerned citizens to the ballot box, noting that it is up to legal officials to get indictments in such cases. “We have to hold these people accountable,” he said.After McSpadden announced to applause that she was considering running for the Ferguson city council, she discussed her own goals of enlightening and giving comfort.“I’ll never get over what happened to my son,” she said. “If I can make a difference, if I can help another mother, and share with them this journey, I feel a little bit better inside.”last_img read more

Brandon Triche leading Boeheim’s Army with renewed search for stardom

first_img Published on August 1, 2017 at 11:38 am Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 Facebook Twitter Google+ The celebration after Brandon Triche’s late 3-pointer in Brooklyn was not flashy. Nothing extra, just the same reservation he displayed as a four-year starter at Syracuse. He later approached the free-throw line with the same ease he showcased when he led SU to the 2013 Final Four. He calmly sunk all four free-throws to secure Boeheim’s Army a spot in the Elite Eight, where he ran point during the SU alumni’s 40-10 run to end the game.  This Triche of summer 2017 insists he’s better than the Triche of 2013, when he averaged 13.6 points as starting shooting guard in his final season at Syracuse. He insists that now he’s a step quicker, a little more mobile and consistent with his jumper. He insists he can scan the floor with an extra sense of how things will play out in front of him. He said the efficiency, strength and floor sense is all there.That’s important because he’s averaging 11 points, six assists and 4.8 boards per game for a Boeheim’s Army team two victories away from capturing The Basketball Tournament’s $2 million grand prize. He missed the entire 2015-16 season overseas due to injury, taking a diminished role in last year’s TBT. Clearing his mind and preserving his body, he surged into TBT this summer.At 26, Triche said what’s most important is showcasing his talents on national TV and, hopefully, earning a nice paycheck. Winning the 64-team, single-elimination tournament this week in Baltimore would give him both, affording him the chance to give it another go in the NBA G-League this fall.“I want to get paid somewhere close to what I deserve,” Triche said, “and use this as a stepping stone. This is a great opportunity at a high enough level where I have exposure on ESPN. If I do play well, teams will see that, and it’ll open up doors I didn’t have before.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDaily Orange File Photo The 6-foot-4 guard does not lead BA in scoring, but he’s been arguably the team’s most efficient player. In both Brooklyn games, he heated up in the second half. He’s running the point with the same composure he displayed at SU and he’s turnover-free.“He’s the best all-around player on our team,” BA guard John Gillon said.Leading up to the tournament, it had been a rocky stretch of basketball for Triche. After graduating SU, he signed a one-year deal in the Italian Second Division. He played for the New York Knicks summer league team in 2014, but didn’t latch on in the NBA.When his production and speed declined in early 2015, Triche said, he was released from an Italian pro team. He told others it was his ankle that bothered him. Yet he had been playing high-level European hoops for a month with “no meniscus, no ACL,” his agent, Jamar Smiley, said. “He’s a monster.”His left knee was reconstructed on March 31, 2015. He first tore his ACL as a 15-year-old at Jamesville-DeWitt (New York) High School. He sat out the entire 2015-16 season.“Being hurt for 16 months,” Triche said, “it’s easy for people to forget about you … some people still ask me (whether) I still play basketball. This past year for me I realized I’m healthy and even better. I’m getting seen by more eyes.”By that, he means a shot at high-level basketball. Specifically, a shot at the NBA by means of the G-League. Stand out there, he figures, and he could get on an NBA floor. In an ideal world, BA wins the title this week and he stays in the United States. If not, he wants to earn what top players overseas make, several hundred thousand dollars per year.While playing there over parts of the past few seasons, he lived in Rome and Israel. Children who recognized Triche came up to him on Israeli beaches and at gas stations, asking for selfies, autographs or just to say hello.Daily Orange File PhotoWhen back at Syracuse, he works out at local YMCAs and the Jewish Community Center in DeWitt. He said he still carries the fact that he appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2012 as a driving force, a reminder to himself that he went from a local three-star recruit to a four-year starter at SU, turning down heavy interest from Georgetown to play for Jim Boeheim at home in central New York.In the process, he stayed to his quiet self. Teammate James Southerland, fresh off a stint with the Utah Jazz in the NBA Summer League, recalls meeting Triche when they were about 16. Southerland approached Triche at a basketball showcase in Philadelphia. Triche didn’t respond.“He packed his bags, didn’t say anything. That was weird as heck,” Southerland said. “Years later, that’s the same kid we’re seeing. That’s the kid who never said a word.”A few days from now he may be back home in the Syracuse area, gearing up for another year overseas. Or he may be celebrating the TBT title with some extra cash in his pocket and a renewed focus at the NBA. Either way, he has reminded Syracuse fans of the same Triche they once saw, rekindling the memories of that deep run in March 2013.“I know my accomplishments,” Triche said, “and the high level I can get to.” Commentslast_img read more
