The Jeanne Sauvé Public Leadership Program is intensive, in-house, intercultural and international program based at Sauvé House in Montreal. Every program cohort brings together a group of young leaders from Canada and around the world to live and work together and to share their passion for addressing a particular globally significant challenge. Participants bring to the program their own expertise and perspectives, shaped by their experiences working to address this issue in their respective contexts, communities and countries.
For the 2017-19 Program, a new cohort of Public Leadership Fellows will collectively explore how focusing on strategies of inclusion can help public leaders respond to the complex challenges facing culturally diverse societies.
The two-year program begins with a full-time residential experience in Montreal with a dozen select Public Leadership Fellows. This is followed by a field phase, in which Fellows return to their respective communities and countries in order to apply the skills and new ideas developed during the residential phase.
Fellows benefit from intensive leadership development training and support during the residential year and some ongoing support from one another and the Foundation during the field year. Thereafter, Fellows are encouraged to remain active members of an emerging community of Jeanne Sauvé public leaders who hail from over 50 countries around the world.
The theme of the 2017-19 Public Leadership Program is Public Leadership for Culturally Diverse Societies: The Inclusion Imperative.
Candidates between 25 and 30 years of age* with backgrounds in the arts, advocacy, communications, journalism, education, engineering, governance, law, politics, security, social innovation and other fields related to public leadership are invited to apply.
Deadline is Friday, October 21, 2016, MIDNIGHT GMT-4
