The Jackson Fellows Network is a community of alumni from the Fellows program. When Jackson Fellows complete their cohort year, they are welcomed into the Network. The Foundation is committed to supporting the Network in advancing Fellows’ professional development goals, and to giving them a platform to stay connected to each other and the Foundation.

The Jackson Leadership Fellows Committee, a formal committee of the Foundation led by members from earlier cohorts, steers the Network’s activities. The Fellows Network’s goals include:

  • Deepen and strengthen the relationships between Fellows and across cohorts to support and learn from one another.
  • Maintain an online platform to catalyze the sharing of ideas, leadership opportunities, questions, experiences, events, successes, failures, and challenges that Fellows are experiencing in real time.
  • Connect and coordinate the online network with in-person events and activities.

The Committee, after conferring with the Network, has focused on the following priorities and activities:

Professional Development: focus on developing opportunities for Fellows to grow professionally through training, coaching, and connections within the Network.
