The Big Problem:

Retaining great talent in campaigns isn’t easy. Running a campaign is intense work — it requires leaders to excel in a high-stakes, fast-paced environment with very real consequences. People burn out, and the work isn’t stable, with huge unemployment dips in the off-cycle. And we believe it's imperative that these leaders come from diverse backgrounds and represent the full breadth of the Democratic party.

What we’re doing about it:

Blue Leadership Collaborative is leveling the playing field with a one-of-a-kind paid fellowship program that transforms high-potential talent, with an emphasis on women and people of color, into well-rounded campaign managers. Our Spring 2019 flagship program trained 20 Fellows who will work as campaign managers during the 2020 election cycle.

Our mission is to win campaigns by empowering and retaining future leaders who are committed to excellence as managers, strategists, and humans.

Past Fellows

 

Fellows in our flagship program came with a diversity in prior political work and career paths, representing 14 states from all around the country. They all had something to learn and something to teach their fellow team members.

 
I feel like we were all trained in school to do things a certain way to get good grades and be good students… But you actually learn by asking questions and using the resources all around you, and that’s what Blue Leadership Collaborative encourages.
