Leadership Fellowships


The Southern California Leadership Network's Fellowships offer unprecedented access, unique relationships and unparalleled content to Southern California's civic leaders.

SCLN has equipped nearly 1,900 civic-minded thinkers with the community and regional knowledge necessary to address quality of life issues in Southern California.

The organization's premier Fellowships are designed with three key components that are distinctive to our programs:

  1. Focused leadership skill development around the 360 Leadership Style Assessment, Mindfulness, and Building Your Leadership Portfolio™
  2. A comprehensive overview of the issues, including behind-the-scenes exploration through case studies. Public policy issues span:
    • Los Angeles City and County
    • Southern California region
    • California statewide
    • Global competitiveness and inclusion
  3. Dialogue among peers and experts

Recruiting efforts are aimed at ensuring that the diversity of the region is reflected fully in the composition of the classes, with special attention given to cultural, gender, age and professional diversity. Classes always include leaders from the ranks of private industry, government and the nonprofit sector. The ideal candidate is a mid- to senior-level executive interested in taking on enhanced civic leadership roles.

Tuition costs vary between the Fellowships, and assistance in the form of partial scholarships is available for qualified applicants who show a demonstrated need for financial aid. Alumni of SCLN's programs and applicants from Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce member organizations receive a 10 percent discount on tuition.
