Multicultural Leadership Institute and Mosaic Makers Conference
What is the Multicultural Leadership Institute?
A new leadership development initiative from Multicultural Growth and Witness designed to inspire, equip, and nurture professional and lay religious leaders who are committed to creating intentionally diverse, welcoming, inclusive, justice-centered, multicultural and multigenerational ministries.
The Multicultural Leadership Institute recognizes that transforming UU institutions to become the Beloved Community where people of many identities are fully welcomed and included requires visionary leadership. In addition to providing experiential learning and fostering learning communities for congregational transformation, the Multicultural Leadership Institute provides resources that enable Unitarian Universalists to develop the intercultural knowledge and skills necessary to participate effectively in social justice coalitions that cross multiple identities.
The Multicultural Leadership Institute's resources include leadership development and community building/organizing materials, educational curricula, workshops, worship and ceremonial guides, and information referrals. Our staff also consult with ministers, religious professionals, and lay leaders who are engaged in anti-racist, anti-oppressive, multicultural transformation of congregations.
What is the Mosaic Makers Conference?
A vital part of the Multicultural Leadership Institute!
The February 2012 Mosaic Makers: Leading Vital Multicultural Congregations Conference officially launched the Multicultural Leadership Institute.
Mosaic Makers was produced in partnership with All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington, DC; approximately 100 UU professional and lay religious leaders came together for worship, experiential learning, and keynotes relating to four key areas: worship, congregational life, justice ministry, and leadership. Participants spent two and a half exhilarating days learning together, building intentional multicultural community, and generating new energies around doing this vitally important work in UU communities and congregations.

A second Mosaic Makers Conference is planned for 2013 at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, OK.
