We are pleased to announced that the Jeanne Sauvé Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program.
As part of the 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program, the Foundation invites bright young change-makers from a wide range of disciplines and sectors from Canada and around to world to take part in a remarkable leadership journey.
Following in the thematic footsteps of the inaugural program, our next cohort of Fellows will explore the complexities of Public Leadership for Culturally Diverse Societies: The Inclusion Imperative. The 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Fellows will be invited to collectively explore how public leaders can help diverse societies to thrive by making inclusion of all cultural groups a guiding principle.
The Program is a unique two-year opportunity. It begins with a full-time residential leadership experience in Montreal with a dozen select Public Leadership Fellows. This is followed by a field phase, in which Fellows return to their respective communities and countries in order to apply the skills and new ideas developed during the residential phase. Fellows benefit from intensive leadership development training and support during the residential year and some ongoing support from one another and the Foundation during the field year.
The Jeanne Sauvé Fellowship is the beginning of a lifelong personal and professional leadership development journey as part of a global community of courageous, connected change-makers.
Candidates between 25 and 30 years of age with backgrounds in advocacy, the arts, communications, journalism, education, engineering, governance, law, politics, security, social innovation and other fields related to public leadership are invited to apply to this program.
