Emerging Leaders Peer-to-Peer network is SCG's highly regarded peer-learning professional development coaching program for select emerging and mid-level career leaders from SCG member organizations. Successful applicants selected for the program will have the opportunity to engage closely with philanthropic colleagues to discuss and reflect on topics related to leadership development, organizational dynamics, collaborative philanthropic impact, philanthropy trends and each member’s professional and personal goals.

Similar to our longtime Senior Peer-to-Peer program, this peer learning group will utilize a coaching model that will enable members to create and implement a personal development plan, as well as to expand networks and alliances for professional growth.

Participants will convene on a bi-monthly basis over one year (2018-2019) to:

  • Re-invigorate their intellectual and emotional connection to their philanthropic work
  • Engage closely with new colleagues in a forum dedicated to thoughtful reflection and mutual learning on questions central to both work and life
  • Build leadership and management strengths while addressing weaknesses
  • Develop a more defined life and career trajectory



SCG will select 10 to 15 emerging/mid-level leaders from current SCG member organizations for the 2018-2019 cohort. Participants must commit to attend every session. The ideal participant will bring the following:

  • Three to five years in a mid-level leadership role at one or more grantmaking organizations
  • Commitment to responsible stewardship and the philanthropic sector
  • Desire to actively develop themselves as leaders and be open to new experiences, skills and ongoing self-discovery
  • The full support of his/her organization’s leadership and the intention to remain with the organization for the duration of the one-year program.


Please note that in order to create an environment for open sharing and peer learning, no more than one participant per foundation will be selected to participate.



This year, we are thrilled to announce Angel Roberson-Daniels, Executive Director, The Angell Foundation, as our 2018-2019 Emerging Leaders Peer-to-Peer facilitator.

Angel Roberson-Daniels is the Executive Director for The Angell Foundation where she manages the daily philanthropic and administrative operations of the grantmaking staff. Throughout her career, she has worked with foundations and community-based organizations to design and evaluate programs and interventions that effectively produce positive outcomes for vulnerable communities. Prior to joining The Angell Foundation, she was a Program Officer at First 5 LA where she was instrumental in the development of large-scale community and systemic initiatives and the allocation of over $800 million in investments designed to benefit young children and their families throughout Los Angeles County. She facilitated and led planning and assessment efforts for local nonprofit and public health organizations as a Research Analyst for the UCLA Technical Assistance Group and has served in various capacities working with and on behalf of organizations that provide care and support to foster youth in South Los Angeles. Roberson-Daniels is past co-chair of the Los Angeles Partnership for Early Childhood Investment, current co-chair of the Los Angeles County Arts for All Pooled Fund and serves on the Board for the Boston Opportunity Agenda. She is also a Leadership Fellow and member of The Association for Black Foundation Executives.



The Emerging Leader Peer-to-Peer cohort meets six times (roughly every two months) over a one year timeframe. Meeting dates, times and locations for each meeting will be set by Angel and the participants.
