Open Leaders

Mozilla Open Leaders. Mentorship and Training on Working Open

Mozilla’s Open Leaders program was an online mentorship and training program.

In Rounds 1-7, mentors worked with project leads over 14-weeks equipping them with the skills to work open. Make a copy of the Open Leaders Culture Track and Project Track Syllabi and turn it into your own working open project.

Round 8, called OLˣ, was a unique round where staff and community experts acted as champions in training others to develop and lead their own open leadership programs in their communities.
