Leadership Institute Fellows (Washington, D.C.)

Application Deadline: Friday, September 9, 2011.

The Leadership Institute of the Center for American Progress seeks to identify, equip, and advance a new generation of leaders from diverse backgrounds and communities to assume responsible roles in the development and implementation of progressive public policies.

The program will consist of nine Leadership Fellows, drawn from those with experience working with communities of color, who have demonstrated an interest and commitment to progressive public policies. The Leadership Fellows will gather two days of each month for nine months to discover, define, and develop skills necessary to create and advocate policy ideas to diverse constituencies.

Leadership Institute Fellow applicants should be highly motivated individuals seeking to expand their skills, perspectives, and networks to impact progressive social change. Successful applicants will have a demonstrated interest in filling the gaps that exist between traditional public policies and communities of color.

The Institute will present a program of engagement for Fellows that includes seminars, policy organization observation, visits to policy and media hubs, networking events, dinner discussions, and an assigned policy project. The program will assist Fellows in developing:

  • Links and networks between the fellows and the progressive policy world, including grassroots organizations, media, and government
  • Methods to introduce policy ideas to diverse groups and move policy ideas from inception to permanent mainstream change by employing field operations, research analysis, legislation, nonprofit collaborations, and tactical messaging

CAP’s Leadership Institute is a project of Progress 2050, which develops new ideas for an increasingly diverse America.
