2021 Fall Events

Gathering in Philadelphia for the first time in more than two years, Eisenhower Fellowships hosted a dazzling Awards Dinner under the stars, capping two days of dynamic events that marked our return to personal engagement after months of forced separation because of the Covid pandemic. EF brought together 229 invited guests from around the world on October 11 and 12, including 94 Eisenhower Fellows from 28 countries who overcame complex Covid travel restrictions so they once again could be with their colleagues. At the Annual Awards Ceremony, EF Chairman Robert Gates, former U.S. secretary of defense, presented the Dwight D. Eisenhower Medal for Leadership and Service to Jamie Dimon, chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, and the Distinguished Fellow Award to Anita Brown-Graham, a 2005 USA Fellow and the Director of the ncIMPACT Initiative at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Celebrated actor Harry Lennix lauded the EF community as “examples of the art of living.” The two-day gathering also featured the Chairman’s Seminar, where guests participated in an off-the-record discussion about world events with Secretary Gates, and a Pin Ceremony, where EF welcomed 24 members of the 2021 Global Program into its global network and recognized Fellows from the 2020 Women’s Leadership and 2019 USA Programs.
