This subject critically examines what community leadership and resilience mean in the context of community development theory and practice. It gives close attention to models that attend to the power inequalities shaping leadership and resilience among communities. Practices are considered that foster community leadership, resilience and power for social action and change including organising, activism, resistance, social movements and participatory democracy and economies. The theory and practice implications of challenging the power inequalities that undermine inclusive community leadership and resilience are analysed. The subject is designed with adaptable delivery models, which may include combinations of condensed online sessions and one-off workshops.
