Application period opens from May 1, 2018. Deadline: June 15, 2018 at 5.00pm.
We want to get to know you through the application process, and we know that sometimes the conventional format of a resume doesn't tell us much about you. As most of the program will be reflective in nature, we encourage you to reflect on who you are, what you are aspiring to do, and how this experience will enrich that journey.
Therefore, we would like you to put some thought into the letter of experience and application essay. These will make up the most important pieces of your application.
The Letter of Experience Think of this as in lieu of a resume. This should be no longer than two pages. It must include (not necessarily in this order):
Tell us something about your own life's mission, vision, and the values you hold dear,
Tell us how these connect to your work,
Tell us about the skills and expertise you bring,
Tell us something about your community, and how your work either connects or doesn't connect to your community,
Mention details such as the industries you have been a part of.
As part of this program, you will identify a champion who will be part of your project. Who do you have in mind and how do you envision them supporting you?
Application Essay This is your opportunity to dig deeper into why the leadership program will help you grow. This should be no longer than five pages. Include:
How did you end up on the career path you are on?
What does the future look like if you are able to invest in your network or career path’s transformation?
Who, where and what will you be once you complete this program? Where will this transformation lead?
Are you where you want to be? Please elaborate.
What is the change you hope to see in your organization to be more equitable?
If you are ready with your materials, please submit it in the form below:
