IGNITE Fellowship for Women of Color in the Social Sector - Apply by Noon May 24

NYU Wagner's Research Center for Leadership in Action is now accepting applications for the IGNITE Fellowship for Women of Color in the Social Sector.

IGNITE is a nine-month program that celebrates and builds the leadership skills of mid-career women of color in nonprofits across the US.

The fellowship offers exposure to best practices, processes for building personal and organizational leadership, opportunities to build and strengthen core management capacities, and a national network of women of color in the sector.

It begins with a five-day Institute from August 1-6, 2013 that draws on the best of New York City as a hub for nonprofit innovation and offers Fellows a space to engage in reflection and rejuvenation. Over the following nine months, fellows participate in ongoing peer mentoring, coaching and webinars to work toward their leadership goals.

IGNITE is a program of RCLA’s People of Color Leadership Network, which aims to strengthen communities of color by supporting leadership by and for people of color. 

The application deadline is noon EST on Friday, May 24, 2013.
