2020 WOMEN'S lEADERSHIP pROGRAM: OCTOBER - nOVEMBER, 2020
SELECTION: Eisenhower Fellowships’ Women's Leadership Program seeks talented women leaders with a proven track record of achievement to join its influential global network of over 1,600 active Fellows. We seek diverse, dynamic doers with the vision to make the world a better place as well as the ability to create and implement a concrete plan to make that vision a reality post-fellowship. Fellows represent all professional sectors – private, public and nonprofit – and hail from any number of careers, from journalism to the military to higher education to private corporations to the theater and beyond.
What all Fellows share, regardless of their professional background or nationality, is a desire to make meaningful positive change in the world in collaboration with peers across sectors and borders. Successful candidates are eager to leverage the global network of Eisenhower Fellowships and engage, over their lifetime as an Eisenhower Fellow, in constructive projects and initiatives designed to enhance the values of Eisenhower Fellowships: peace, prosperity and justice.
In the fall of 2020, Eisenhower Fellowships (EF) will assemble a diverse group of exemplary women change agents, aged 32-45, from around the world to participate in its unique six-week program. The goal of this program is to deepen Fellows’ leadership skills, connect innovative Fellows with like-minded colleagues in the EF network and foster sustained collaborations that result in measurable, positive real-world impact.
This innovative program connecting and empowering exceptional women leaders from all fields builds on Eisenhower Fellowships’ previous Women’s Leadership Programs and is open to outstanding candidates from every country in the EF global network.
