Over the years, we have cultivated a network of education and workforce champions across the country through signature programming to equip state and local chambers and associations with the information, resources, and tools necessary to implement change in their communities along the education and workforce continuum.
The Business Leads Fellowship Program formalizes that work.
The structure of the program includes two separate, three-day intensive workshops that focus on the history, policy, and programming on topics spanning the education pipeline. The first workshop focuses Fellow's attention on early and K-12 education as well as college and career readiness. The second workshop completes the talent pipeline with coverage of postsecondary education and a wide range of workforce development topics. The workshops are taught by expert faculty as well as staff from state and local chambers who have put policy into practice to bring change and opportunity to their communities.
