Call for application-the Millennium Leadership Program 2022-2023

Deadline : 10/03/2022

Credit : The Millennium Fellowship

The Millennium Fellowship is a part-time program that consists of engaging virtual content and an in-person Study Tour. To frame their experience, fellows start by completing a leadership diagnostic assessment developed by our partners at leadership consulting firm Spencer Stuart. This Individual Style Profile helps Fellows to better understand their leadership strengths and blind spots as well as develop strategies for charting a personal pathway for growth. Over the course of the program, fellows complete a comprehensive leadership curriculum developed at the Harvard Kennedy School. Through interactive workshops, case work, and peer consulting, fellows hone their sense of purpose and enhance their capacity to mobilize change.

Other key components of the Millennium Fellowship programming include monthly master classes with distinguished senior leaders and subject matter experts, individualized executive coaching, and intentional networking.

The program’s virtual offerings are accompanied by an in-person Study Tour wherein fellows travel to the frontlines of a global challenge. Tours grant Fellows a deep dive into a local issue as a way to explore wider contemporaneous macro-trends. Recent tours include a post-conflict South Caucasus trip through Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia; Turkey and Greece at the height of the Syrian Refugee crisis; Colombia after the FARC peace deal; and Ukraine after the Revolution of Dignity. You can read more about Study Tours below.

Finally, fellows have access to a menu of Atlantic Council events such as panel discussions, virtual conferences, in-person summits, and more.
