Eisenhower Fellowships maintains a powerful network of women leaders from all countries and sectors. Women Fellows have led the charge to create ongoing opportunities to advance their leadership and grow their impact. Thanks to the leadership of the Vice Chair of the EF Board of Trustees, Governor Christine Todd Whitman, Eisenhower Fellowships has continued to build greater gender balance in our programming and global network activities.


Since 2010, Eisenhower Fellowships has offered strategic, targeted leadership programs that host up to 25 mid-career women leaders from fields such as the arts, journalism, public policy, government, education, science and technology and the law. They hold positions of power in government, universities, non-governmental organizations, venture capital funds, think tanks and philanthropic organizations. Women Eisenhower Fellows also may work specifically to advance women’s equality in their countries.
