The Fellows Program is the Leadership Foundation’s signature leadership development program. Now in its 26th year, the Fellows Program accelerates the careers of top-performing women through world-class leadership training and mentoring from executive women leaders. The approach is holistic and focused on the participant’s personal and professional development, career path, and trajectory, while embracing the value of an outside perspective.

The program convenes approximately 35 Fellows from around the world for a total of 20 days, comprised of three separate sessions. It is executed in partnership with INSEAD and Harvard Business School. The Fellows Program offers creative, multidisciplinary training aimed at developing leadership and strategic management capabilities.

In addition to leadership training, Fellows are matched with an IWF member who serves as a mentor and coach during the program year. Through the mentoring experience, participants gather personal insights and advice from women at the top of their field. Fellows also take part in IWF’s annual World Leadership Conference, which brings together 850+ female executives from more than 40 nations.
