For the 2017-19 Program, a new cohort of Public Leadership Fellows will collectively explore how focusing on strategies of inclusion can help public leaders respond to the complex challenges facing culturally diverse societies.
The two-year program begins with a full-time residential 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. Thereafter, Fellows are encouraged to remain active members of an emerging community of Jeanne Sauvé public leaders who hail from over 50 countries around the world.
The theme of the 2017-19 Public Leadership Program is Public Leadership for Culturally Diverse Societies: The Inclusion Imperative.
Candidates between 25 and 30 years of age with backgrounds in the arts, advocacy, communications, education, engineering, environmental conservation, governance, journalism, law, politics, public policy, religion, security, social innovation, and other fields related to public leadership are invited to apply.
Year 1 (Full-time, Residential Phase): A full-time, intensive, residential leadership development experience in Montreal with a dozen Sauvé Fellows from Canada and around the world.
Year 2 (Part-time, Field Phase): Fellows apply skills, test new ideas and implement initiatives conceptualized in residence, either alone or in collaboration with other Fellows. During this phase, Fellows benefit from ongoing leadership development support from their cohort as well as from the Foundation. Fellows are encouraged to return to their respective communities and countries during this phase.
Lifelong Engagement: After completion of the Field Year of the Program, Fellows are encouraged to remain active members of the growing community of Jeanne Sauvé public leaders around the world.
