Our Fellowship offers emerging leaders a rigorous, interdisciplinary program on ways to be a different kind of leader, a leader that connects and cares for self, extends genuine compassion to others, and works for our common humanity. Fellows cultivate practices in mind training for increasing self-awareness, self-care and resilience, for connecting with others and working across differences, and in building solutions for generations to come. Over the course of a year, with the support of mentors and coaches, each Fellow designs and implements an original Field Project addressing a global challenge. Upon graduation, Fellows join a LifeLong Community, where they connect with and support each other while continuing to advance their leadership journeys.
To date we have awarded 101 Fellowships.
A Global Leadership Curriculum
Collaborating with experts from around the globe from Thupten Jinpa, the Dalai Lama’s translator and renowned author, to Marshall Ganz from the Harvard Kennedy School, over the last six years, we have created a distinctive, immersive leadership curriculum which builds a skill-set, complementary to the cognitive and commercial education that Fellows typically acquire in school. Our Head, Heart and Hands curriculum has three main components:
- Head – Training the mind, exploring inner values, cultivating practices to enhance self awareness
- Heart – Harnessing the intelligence of the heart, deepening compassion, practices for working across differences
- Hands – Acting now, in community, to benefit the world, building unexpected relationships and leading with the mindset of interdependence
