Harvard University Advanced Leadership Initiative
The Harvard University Advanced Leadership Initiative's goal is to assist experienced leaders who want to solve important social problems in the next stage of their professional lives. A key part of this assistance is providing an opportunity for the selected participants to spend one year in an intensive structured program at Harvard as Advanced Leadership Fellows. Faculty leadership for this initiative include Harvard Professors Rosabeth Moss Kanter, David Gergen, William George, Charles Ogletree, and Nitin Nohria. The program was founded in January 2009.
