National Yearlong Fellows AnnouncedJuly 21st, 2010
After an intensive nomination and application process, we are happy to announce the participants in our eighth annual National Yearlong Fellowship, Leading From the Inside Out.
Each year, Rockwood's Yearlong takes 24 nationally recognized leaders through an intensive, transformative learning program. Since 2003, this executive leadership program has emerged as one of the nation's leading learning laboratories for experienced social change leaders.
The National Yearlong Fellowship selection process takes into account a great number of factors, including Rockwood's commitment to build connections between leaders who are diverse in personal/social history and identity, geography, methodology and issue focus.
