Rodel America

Innovative leadership workshops for state and local leaders
across the United States.

Rodel America

The Rodel Institute convenes bipartisan groups of state and local leaders from select regions of the nation to participate in leadership development workshops employing the proven Rodel seminar model. The program is designed to break down partisan barriers, increase mutual understanding, and create an atmosphere conducive to practical problem-solving. The seminar discussions are designed not just to identify and highlight policy differences, but to help participants identify areas of shared concern and common values. Through thought-provoking readings, open and honest conversations, and time spent in fellowship, participants build trust and lasting relationships amongst themselves that they carry back to their everyday work. Rodel has launched pilot programs in Memphis, Tennessee; Rhode Island, and Washington state.
