About the MELI Fellowship
Each class of MELI Fellows consists of 20-24 individuals, largely from the business sector, who undertake a program of four week-long seminars over the course of two years and an individual leadership venture under the direction of experienced Aspen Institute-certified moderators and local mentors. The Fellows are men and women between the ages of 30-45 who, having already achieved considerable professional success, are at an “inflection point” in their lives or careers – i.e., they are ready to consider what broader leadership role they might take on.
- The Challenge of Leadership focuses on the qualities of leadership necessary to master the forces of change. Fellows discuss their own leadership challenges and develop criteria for effective, enlightened leadership.
- The Aspen Seminar is the Aspen Institute's foundational seminar. It gives the opportunity to explore the concept of the "good society" and the Fellows' leadership role in making it a reality.
- Leading in an Era of Globalization explores the challenges of leading in an increasingly complex and intertwined world. Aspen Global Leadership Network Fellows from countries around the world attend jointly.
- The Promise of Leadership explores the concepts of legacy and life balance. Fellows share the progress achieved, challenges encountered, and lessons learned from their leadership ventures.
