Lead from the Outside: How to Build Your Future and Make Real Change by Stacey Abrams

and previously published as Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change


"is the handbook for outsiders, written with an eye toward the challenges that hinder women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and millennials ready to make change. Stacey uses her hard-won insights to break down how ambition, fear, money, and failure function in leadership, and she includes practical exercises to help you realize your own ambition and hone your skills. Lead from the Outside discusses candidly what Stacey has learned over the course of her impressive career in politics, business and the nonprofit world: that differences in race, gender, and class provide vital strength, which we can employ to rise to the top and create real and lasting change." goodreads.com

Book choice and discussion group date will be based on feedback from the community.

This series is a voluntary learning experience open to our Volunteers and Summer Leadership Alumni. The groups will be facilitated with group norms and a moderator. The books and documentaries we will explore may contain themes and content that could be sensitive or uncomfortable to some. Please know that there is no obligation to participate and at any point in the process, you can leave the book, documentary, or discussion group without judgment or consequence.

Throughout the year we will host book clubs, documentary watch parties, or explore podcasts along with facilitated discussions surrounding a social justice topic(s) for our volunteers & SLP alumni to engage, learn, and grow together.
