A next-generation acceleration program for newcomers with a strong ambition
to penetrate strategic networks and influence the fields of civil society
and public leadership in Europe.
Emerging Leaders is a certifying program run by PLACE, a start-up specialized in newcomer talent, and The German Marshall Fund, a prestigious public policy thinktank fostering transatlantic leaders since 1972.
The economic world today is highly impacted by global challenges such as climate change, tech inclusion, gender equality, access to education and urban development. It needs new talents to navigate the changes associated with these phenomena.
Organizations in the fields of business, media and advocacy need women and men willing to embody new models of leadership. Newcomers, including migrants and refugees, bringing new insights and fresh solutions, are in a unique position to shape high-value answers to these topics.
Emerging Leaders offers a new and dynamic pedagogy in service of new leadership roles.
Complete with certification by the German Marshall Fund, this opportunity includes:
Professional challenges with expert feedback
Production of a professional portfolio relevant for public leadership
Next-generation mentoring based on goal-setting and a personal coach
Immersion in strategic events with leaders in the sector
Self-driven learning supported by leading ed-tech platforms
During 8 months, from March to October 2020, emerging leaders will develop their vision of how they want to contribute to strategic networks and leading organizations. They will learn to apply best practices in the sector in practical, real-world situations. They will nurture their sense of initiative to make their mark in their future work environments.
Why is newcomer leadership a game-changer?
Because racially and ethnically diverse companies outperform industry norms by 35%
Because inclusive organizations are 1.7 times more likely to be innovation leaders in their market
Because organizations with diverse teams are 158% more likely to better design solutions for diverse groups
