The Sheila C. Johnson Leadership Fellowship brings together diverse and talented emerging leaders based on their demonstrated leadership promise and demonstrated interest in reducing disparities in African-American communities through efforts in health care, education, economic development, public policy, criminal justice reform, social entrepreneurship, and a variety of other fields. The program connects fellows with highly accomplished national and international leaders and provides them with the skills to:
- Foster sustainable change in communities,
- Build cross-sector partnerships and collaborations, and
- Inspire new ideas and innovative change in programs and policies that serve communities.
We need committed people working to achieve social change despite significant odds. We need emerging leaders who want to strengthen their ability to transform communities. We need you.
