The Open Leadership Camp (OLC) is a new type of professional development program for senior leaders of nonprofit and public sector organizations. It aims to apply the principles of open source, open innovation, and the decentralized nature of the web to the way some of our most crucial social sector organizations work.
This project is a collaboration between Mozilla and the ML Learning Initiative, and is hosted by MIT Media Lab director Joi Ito and Mitchell Baker, co-founder and executive chairwoman of the Mozilla Corporation. In March 2017, we brought together our first cohort of 14 participants, including the CEO of Consumer Reports, the CIO of the City of Detroit, and the CEO of WGBH. Our second cohort, from November 2017, included the director of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA), the executive director of Conservation International, and the director of the Cleveland Public Library.
