Our Vision

When diverse leaders are at the public policy table, we all benefit.

About:

The Global Organization for Applied-Political Leadership (G.O.A.L) is the first and foremost training incubator for diverse political talent in applied politics, communication, and advocacy. We envision a world where global and domestic advocacy leaders represent the diversity of a globalized society, not limited to race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or creed. G.O.A.L will cultivate a robust talent pipeline of diverse civic leaders who will revolutionize how government serves people globally though professional development, executive education, and networking.

Our Approach:

G.O.A.L’s training programs provide diverse citizens, from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, with the best practices, lessons learned, and strategies for success necessary to develop their capacity for effective advocacy. Our Diversity in Advocacy Training is aimed at leaders of color, young and old, who are currently underrepresented in grassroots, political, and civic advocacy.
