2018 American Express NGen Fellowship nominations are open

 

Are you eager to grow as a leader, but unsure whether you have the right preparation and network to get you there? Is there something stopping you from making the change you want to see in your organization, or in the world?

If these are familiar questions to you or someone you know, we have good news. Independent Sector is now accepting nominations for the 2018 American Express NGen Fellows program. Now in its ninth year, the program has served more than 100 exceptional leaders, age 40 and under, with the tools and networking opportunities they needed to grow personally and professionally.

But you don’t have to take our word for it. Here’s what some previous fellows have said about their experience:

“I am a better, stronger, more self-aware leader with a more competent and comprehensive grasp of capacity building, cross-sector collaboration, and adaptive leadership.”

“[The NGen Fellows program] was instrumental in me obtaining my new role. The board of trustees were impressed that I was selected, talked to me a great deal about my experiences and believed that the networking and leadership work I conducted as a fellow would be an asset to my new organization.”

Nominating yourself or somebody you know only takes a few seconds. We’ll follow up with nominees via email with information about the program application process. The deadline for nominations and applications is 11:59 PM PT on Monday, March 5, 2018.

If you have questions or concerns, send us an email at ngenfellows@independentsector.org.
