What our Leadership Academy fellows are saying
The Leadership Academy is a treasure – it brings enormous value by connecting the scholars with people across various industries who experienced success and who are eager to share what they learned along the way. No regular training/course provides similar value.
Galina Livitina2021 JLeaders cohort
In a time of social distancing, this has been a phenomenal way to make new meaningful connections and feel like we’re a part of a community. The valuable skills we are learning can be applied to both our professional and personal lives, so there is a broad spectrum of helpful information that can be applied on a daily basis.
Andrew Gelman2021 JLeaders cohort
The Academy has been a really valuable experience. There have been many incredible speakers who have delivered amazing material as well as creating a community of emerging leaders.
Andrea Levy2021 JLeaders cohort
The Leadership Academy is a fascinating experience that gives young professionals the chance to meet others. At the core I think that’s the most valuable part, but having a constant flow of TED talks keeps things exciting, and I feel like there’s something really cool here. I think there’s some valuable lessons to take from it.
