In our world, divide and conquer must become define and empower. ~ It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.
-- Audre Lorde
Dear Matrix Friends,
When you walk into any Matrix Leadership event, your deepest learning and inspiration will come in part from the convergence of people who are different from you. A training group could include a young musician, a 75-year old retired school teacher, a marketing director of a large communications firm, a Ghanaian nutritionist, a young Latina executive, a gay rights activist, a white male senior vice president, a womens' high school basketball coach, and an environmental leadership student. Of the 9 people, about half of them may have received full or partial scholarships to support their participation in Matrix Leadership training.
We are deeply committed to providing this training to all who seek to co-create an interconnected, sustainable world. Help us provide Scholarships for Young Leaders, Mentors, Elders & Global Citizens for Matrix Leadership Training.
Training in Matrix Leadership makes a difference!
Scholarships ensure that our training groups include diverse participants from unique backgrounds, professions, countries and communities. The principles and practices of Matrix Leadership can be utilized throughout their careers, family and community lives. We use scholarship donations to fulfill our mission and maintain financial viability while reaching out to people of varying resources.

Criteria and Commitment
All scholarships applicants submit a proposal detailing the ways in which they envision utilizing Matrix skills to impact their community, organization or the world.

If you would like to support the development of a specific non-profit program, e.g. training social workers to bring Matrix into families or developing a mentor program for at-risk youth, we would be happy to explore partnering to apply Matrix Leadership in specific contexts.
Any donation amount is welcome and will go toward a scholarship for a Matrix program. If you can give $10 or $20 per month, you will play a significant part in shifting consciousness to interconnection. It is money that will be returned to the world many-fold.
Making a donation is easy and tax-deductible.
WE THANK YOU, our FUTURE LEADERS thank you, and most of all the WORLD will be a better place with more CONSCIOUS LEADERS and members of our human community working in LIVING SYSTEMS creating SUSTAINABLE ORGANIZATIONS.

"A member of a training in Chicago in 2000, I am here, standing tall and here to tell you that every moment of my training was a challenge. I found it enlightening, consuming, heart-filled, frustrating, exhilarating, annoying, joyful, terrifying, comforting, irritating, restoring, hysterical, healing and transforming. My experiences ran the gamut of human emotions and experiences, all of which can be summed up in two words: Life Altering. Issues of trust (in self and others), community, tolerance, growth - and more. Yes, ‘life altering‘. Definitely. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat. This time, I‘d enter freely vs. kicking and screaming! As one insightful co-participant said: ‘This program could change the world.‘ True."
