Presidio Institute Fellows

Presidio Institute Fellows –
An intensive, year-long engagement that brings senior leaders together to "move the needle" on major challenges


Applications for the​ 2018 Presidio Institute Fellows cohort will open in Spring 2017.

The Presidio Institute Fellows program grows the skillset of your top talent and positions your organization as a thought leader with a 21st century approach to collaboration.

This year-long, multi-city experience brings together a curated cohort of 24 senior executives from business, non-profits, government, philanthropy, and academia for experiences that will forever alter their problem-solving mindset.

Fellows come to the program with a real world or real business project they are currently facing. They then work with world-class Presidio Institute instructors – and with each other – to apply a cross-sector leadership methodology that yields breakthrough results.

Fellows participate in five-day experiences held in San Francisco, Washington DC, and New York City. In these distinctive settings they are trained on across-sector leadership curriculum complemented by onsite engagements with inspirational leaders from diverse organizations. Past participants have benefitted from access to senior level leaders at the White House, Tesla, Blackrock, McKinsey & Co, Google, DC Central Kitchen, the City of Oakland, the United Way, New York University, the Case Foundation, and many others. 

The Fellows program's intensive approach, which includes time for real relationship-building across multi-day sessions, has been lauded by its alumni for the intimate and meaningful connections it fosters. Fellows stay in touch before, during, and after the experience through our online leadership education platform, LEADEROSITY, and keep collaborating long after the program ends.

The Presidio Institute Fellows program is for organizations that want to enhance their internal capacity for problem solving; to bring a fresh perspective to their leadership approach; and to build a network that transcends traditional boundaries.
