Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG) is the world’s largest membership for professional learning and expertise, partnering with organizations seeking targeted connections to insights by providing access to a global network of over 375,000 experts. In 2013, GLG launched their Social Impact Fellows program, which leverages their global network and services in support of innovative, high-impact nonprofits and social enterprises and their leaders. Zecki Dossal (SHS ´98), currently a SVP at GLG, shared a new component of this initiative with us -- a Fellowship-type program for small to mid-size nonprofits and social enterprises, an exciting opportunity for the right leader and the right organization.
GLG has set a goal of reaching twenty Fellows this year, and are particularly focused on identifying candidates working in Asia/China and Latin America. Ideal candidates are innovative nonprofits and social enterprises that are:
- led by dynamic, younger leaders like us
- are tackling a significant social challenge
- have budgets from $500,000 - ~$7M
- have proven their model with results
- are at an inflection point
- value expertise and networks as essential for improving and impact
