- The Nightingale Fellowship
A 1-1 coaching and community support program for courageous women on the front-line of the COVID-19 pandemic response to nurture resilience, well-being, and full leadership potential. The Nightingale Fellowship is a new COVID-response program created to nurture and build leadership capacity in women working in education, healthcare, housing, social services, and other direct practice professions impacted by the pandemic. The pressures of the pandemic on thousands of direct practice professionals has created extreme stress and exhaustion. Due to this exposure, women serving on the front-lines have faced the highest rates of burnout and collective trauma. These women are essential to the welfare and recovery of our global community, yet there are limited opportunities for them to focus on themselves and their long-term growth. This fellowship gives them that chance.
- The Coaching Fellowship Program
Through the combination of executive coaching and fellowship, our program increases the leadership capacity of the next generation of social impact women leaders. We believe that through the combination of coaching and fellowship at a crucial point in their career, young women leaders in social impact will manifest the change they want to be and see in the world faster and at an exponentially greater scale. The Coaching Fellowship is a leadership development program designed specifically for women in social impact. The program offers individual leadership coaching as well as opportunities to connect with empowered women around the world.
