Mayor Gillmor and Neil Datar 07 12 21

What Leadership Qualities Do We Need to Cultivate to Engage People?

Our youth leaders and staff asked this and other questions of Santa Clara Mayor Lisa Gillmor and the City’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Commission Chairman Neil Datar in a leadership seminar.

We are grateful to Mayor Gillmor and Chairman Datar for dialoging with us about the importance of leaders making sure to connect with people where they live, with what they care about and what impacts them most.

We’re on the road for our six-week, 40-city “To Us, You Matter Civic Engagement Tour” of California, Oregon, Washington and Alabama. We’re studying civic engagement problems and actions with community leaders and the public.
