On July 22, 14 New England Leaders began their ELP Fellowship Program in Friendly Crossways Retreat Center in Harvard, MA. The first day of the 4 day retreat focused on creating community and building the foundation for the challenging two days of work focused on diversity and leading across difference. This year's diversity training has been redeveloped with the help of ELP Senior Fellow Marcelo Bonta, Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Diversity and the Environment, to incorporate more tools and actions for Fellows to bring back to their organizations, agencies and institutions. The orientation retreat concluded with sessions dedicated to the development of Fellows’ Personal Leadership Plans.
“I learned many new ways to reach out to communities my organization has not yet worked with. I also plan to apply and translate some of the tools of our diversity training to my organization’s mission statement”
Peter James, NERN 2010 Fellow
