Renew American Together, a 501 (c)(3) organization designed to promote and achieve greater common ground in America by reducing partisan division and gridlock, has selected Squire Patton Boggs principal Caren Street to its second annual Civility Leadership Institute.
“These leaders have different racial and ethnic backgrounds, geographic locations, career tracks, political beliefs, and industries. To see these dynamic individuals recognize the need for improved communication and civic engagement is encouraging,” said Renew America Together founder General Wesley K. Clark.
Renew America Together’s mission is to revitalize public and political discourse by teaching and promoting civics, citizenship, and civility. Participants convened in Little Rock for the inaugural Summit on Civility in late July, then continue their work virtually for five months and participate in six months of follow-up. Each month they will work through an exciting curriculum, hear from dynamic, nationally recognized speakers, and strengthen their relationships with each other.
In addition, Civility Leadership Institute graduates will receive professional certifications in Crucial Conversations for Mastering Dialogue, TypeCoach Influence Training, and participate in a six-month follow-up program to continue building relationships with one another and measuring their progress and accomplishments.
Prior to joining Squire Patton Boggs, Ms. Street served as Chief of Staff to Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA-37), where she provided counsel on the Member’s legislative priorities, such as police reform and re-entry services, local hiring initiatives, and State Department diversification. She also served as Executive Director for the Congressional Black Caucus for the 116th Congress, and held several positions over the course of nine years for the late Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid.
