About the Program

In the spring of 2024, the Millennium Leadership Program will launch the inaugural class of the Executive Leadership Intensive (ELI). ELI is the distillation of the key Millennium Leadership offerings in an action-packed three-month program sprint. The inaugural cohort brings together a combination of Millennium Fellowship alumni, long-standing organizational partners, and several remarkable young leaders who are brand new to our network. ELI provides a robust leadership curriculum primarily focused around the Adaptive Leadership framework, developed at the Harvard Kennedy School and delivered by our partners at KONU. Participants will also receive a leadership diagnostic assessment provided by our partners at Spencer Stuart.

“The group of humans who make up the Millennium Leadership Program are unbelievably inspiring. Their impact, focus, and optimism will guide my work and life for years to come.”

Amanda Edelman, chief operating officer, Gen Z Lab, Edelman (Millennium Fellowship 2022)

Following our commitment to bring next-generation leaders to the cutting edge of the most pressing foreign policy challenges, the inaugural cohort of ELI will be traveling to Israel and the Palestinian territories in May 2024 to develop a better understanding of the local and regional implications of the ongoing war in Gaza. This learning tour will provide the group with the opportunity to apply the program’s leadership learnings in one of the world’s most raw and complex learning laboratories – meeting with top political, economic, and civil society leaders across Israeli and Palestinian society.
