The Environmental Leadership Program supports emerging environmental and social change practitioners eager to connect their specialized work to larger environmental and social concerns. ELP is committed to selecting Fellows that represents diversity of race and ethnicity, gender, sector, sexual orientation, education levels, professional background, values and traditions, and expertise. Our Fellowship Programs offers intensive leadership and skill training, regional and national networking opportunities, and time for personal and professional reflection. Through retreats and optional additional trainings, our curriculum helps emerging leaders hone their leadership styles, improve their strategy and organizational development, and strengthen their outreach to diverse constituencies.
We address the needs of emerging environmental leaders from academia, business, government and non-profits by:
- Providing training and learning opportunities to increase their leadership capacity through our Fellowship Program;
- Connecting Fellows with peers through our regional and national networks;
- Linking Fellows with experienced environmental leaders through substantive interactions and mentoring opportunities;
- Focusing attention on the need for the environmental community to develop the next generation of leaders.
