Presidio Institute Fellows Program

Posted by Presidio Institute on June 6, 2016

The Presidio Institute Fellows program is 9-month, cohort-based learning experience in cross sector leadership and collaboration. Fellows are mid- and late-career professionals working across the nation in business, non-profits, philanthropy, academia, and government. What do Fellows have in common? No matter what sector they work in, they’re passionate about solving tough problems in their communities, throughout the nation, and across the world! And the Fellowship is an opportunity to grow their capacities, learn alongside others, and advance a cross sector project they are working on back home.

Through the Fellows program, the Presidio Institute helps leaders build their practice of cross sector collaboration in a number of ways. Highlights include:

  • Three, 5-day, in-person learning experiences in:
    • San Francisco April 2-7
    • Washington, DC July 17-21
    • New York City October 16-22
  • Online learning and coaching opportunities before and between in-person learning experiences.
  • Curriculum focusing on leadership development, cross sector leadership skills, as well as learning from the most innovative and effective models, practices, and leaders in the field today;
  • A network of Fellows, alumni, and faculty-practitioners that are working to solve some of the toughest social, economic, and environmental problems we face today.
