Description

As part of the 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program, the Foundation invites bright young change-makers from a wide range of disciplines and sectors from Canada and around to world to take part in a remarkable leadership journey.

Following in the thematic footsteps of the inaugural program, our next cohort of Fellows will explore the complexities of Public Leadership for Culturally Diverse Societies: The Inclusion Imperative. The 2017-19 Jeanne Sauvé Fellows will be invited to collectively explore how public leaders can help diverse societies to thrive by making inclusion of all cultural groups a guiding principle. The Jeanne Sauvé Fellowship is the beginning of a lifelong personal and professional leadership development journey as part of a global community of courageous, connected change-makers.
