The world desperately needs leaders with the courage, drive and political skills to fight climate change and help restore the natural world. The Louis and Gabrielle Bacon Environmental Leadership Fellowship is a transformational experience designed to prepare a new generation for environmental leadership. The fellowship brings together emerging leaders from government, business, and NGOs who are committed to a career in environmental protection.
Leadership is difficult in any enterprise, but it is especially difficult for environmental leaders who face opponents with vastly more power and money. To overcome this power disparity, environmental leaders have learned essential leadership skills:
Self-awareness, listening and empathy
The Bacon Fellows develop these skills through experiential learning, workshops, retreats and leadership coaching sessions with highly accomplished national and international environmental leaders.
The Center for Public Leadership acknowledges the generosity of Louis and Gabrielle Bacon for their support of the Bacon Environmental Leadership Fellowship
