The National Urban Fellows Public Service Leadership Diversity Initiative seeks to advocate and inspire excellence and diversity in public service leadership for America with an emphasis on individual systems.

Through research, communications, stakeholder mobilization, and action, the Public Service Leadership Diversity Initiative will develop and advance a new inclusive public service leadership framework and movement to enhance individual and organizational leadership practices.

Public service leaders and organizations will promote and implement inclusive leadership practices and processes that achieve more fair and equitable results, including more effective and accepted solutions to social issues. Public service, defined as service in government, nonprofit, and/or philanthropy sectors, will become a  highly valued, respected, and impactful element of American livelihood and democracy.
