NYU Wagner's Research Center for Leadership in Action is pleased to announce that 33 accomplished early career professionals have been selected to participate in the Fellowship for Emerging Leaders in Public Service, a premier cross-sector leadership program for emerging leaders in New York City.
The fellowship, now in its eighth year, helps recent college graduates reflect on and strengthen their leadership abilities, deepen their understanding of the public service arena, and engage in strategic career development. Through bi-weekly sessions over the course of seven months, fellows hear from senior officials and nonprofit executives about their own career trajectories and receive ongoing guidance from accomplished professionals who serve as career and alumni guides.
Previous speakers have included New York City Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott; Khary Lazarre-White, co-founder and executive director of The Brotherhood-Sister Sol; Human Rights Watch Director of Programs Iain Levine; and Jennifer Jones Austin, senior vice president of Community Investment for the United Way of New York City.
The fellowship was founded by Ellen Schall, dean of NYU's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, and is sponsored by NYU Wagner's Research Center for Leadership in Action. It reflects RCLA's broader work to develop the knowledge and capacity for leadership to transform society.
The fellows selected are from diverse backgrounds and have demonstrated a commitment to public service and leadership. They work for a variety of nonprofit, government, philanthropic and private enterprises advancing the public good. This year's class includes representatives from the New York City Mayor’s Office of Operations, the United Nations and Open Society Foundations, as well as Prep for Prep, New York Cares and Taproot Foundation.
