AMEX Emerging Leaders Program Launch press release

The National Council for Research on Women with support from the American Express Foundation will host a one-year (2010-2011) program to support emerging leaders in the non-profit sector. The 35 fellows will receive mentorship and training in areas such as human resources management, securing organizational resources, and ‘leading from the middle’ (as opposed to top-down strategies).
