Philanthropist and National Democratic Finance Committee member Kathy Levinson has been presented with many awards for her contributions to LGBT rights, as well as for her work as a leader in San Francisco’s business sector. In conjunction with her work with a number of Fortune 500 companies, Kathy Levinson was chosen as an American Leadership Fellow (ALF), completing a year-long leadership program. ALF is an organization that focuses on cultivating active, socially conscious leaders.
To develop leaders who are committed to the common good, the ALF emphasizes the promotion of certain ideals. Among these are the importance of building supportive networks of trustworthy leaders, along with a solid understanding of the importance of diversity. ALF encourages its Senior Fellow to appreciate the role of self-empowerment in the process of personal enrichment and to recognize the potential benefits of an interconnected world. Ultimately, leaders who complete the ALF program are trained to uphold these ideals and take on responsibility for inspiring others to change their communities for the better.
