Frequently Asked Questions
When will applications re-open?
We expect to open applications for our next cohort of leaders in late summer or fall 2021. More information will be announced in spring 2021. To be sure you are made aware of the announcement, please subscribe to our email list at the bottom of this page.
The next cohort will start in 2022 and will experience a redesigned, streamlined program.
Why is the program changing?
In 2020, increasing acknowledgement of systemic racism and growing recognition of COVID-19’s inequitable impacts reinforced the crucial need to invest in community change leadership. Recent months have also taught us how important it is for leadership experiences to be responsive to the needs, lived realities, and real-world constraints on time and bandwidth of those leading change in their communities and in systems most affected by inequities.
After much deliberation and reflection, the Culture of Health Leaders team has decided to shift the program model to make it more accessible to emerging leaders, more responsive to the challenges they face, and even more effective in creating a more just and equitable future for all.
How is the program changing?
Starting in 2022, the program will offer a more streamlined leadership experience that is shorter in duration and more responsive to the needs and contemporary realities of people working for change.
For leaders who joined the program in 2020 or earlier, the transformative, innovative program experience will continue for the planned three-year duration.
