The Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute (EFLI) is proud to announce the opening of the application process for the 2013 summer session. Now in its fourth year, EFLI promotes leadership in young women through self-empowerment, connection with others and activism in Westchester County, NY.
This summer, EFLI will offer two sessions of the twelve-day Activating Leadership program for first year participants, beginning July 15 and August 5. Last year, thirty nine talented and courageous young women participated in the Activating Leadership program, and this year EFLI plans to reach an even larger population.
EFLI is also pleased to continue their Leading for Impact session for returning EFLI participants. This year, the program will expand from three to five weeks to allow additional time for action and reflection. Additionally, EFLI will carry on the LIFE Fellowship, a summer internship program for a select group of recent high school graduates.
From humble beginnings working with just twelve girls in the 2010 Activating Leadership pilot program, the Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute has gone on to work with over 150 young women through the implementation of it’s three innovative programs.
