The mission of the ELP is to support visionary, action-oriented, and diverse leadership for a just and sustainable future.
ELP's Fellowship Program offers intensive leadership and skill training, regional networking opportunities, and time for personal and professional reflection. Consisting of retreats and additional optional trainings, our curriculum helps emerging leaders hone their leadership styles, identify leverage points that affect real change through systems thinking, and strengthen their outreach to diverse constituencies.
ELP provides training to emerging and innovative leaders from academia, business, government and the non-profit sector. Upon completing the training program, participants join ELP's Senior Fellows Network of more than 500 graduates from across the country who are working towards a just and a sustainable future.
ELP Fellows participate in overnight retreats in the course of a year to build their leadership capacity and develop personal leadership plans. Fellows also work together to develop public issue forums, networking events and national conferences
It is exceptionally rare to encounter such a diverse, talented and insightful group of people, let alone how to have an opportunity to build ongoing relationships with them that will impact your life.
