IWF has officially opened its application for the 2021-2022 Fellows Program; submissions are due June 1.
Each year, IWF invests in making women stronger, smarter and more influential through its Fellows Program, a year-long, intensive leadership development experience. Since the program was established in 1994, IWF annually convenes approximately 35 Fellows from around the world for a total of 20 days. Featuring academic partnerships with Harvard Business School and INSEAD, the program offers world-class leadership training and mentoring for high-achieving women leaders on their path to the C-suite.
Funding for the Fellows Program is provided by the nominating organization or IWF Forum (or a combination thereof) and self-pay; the Foundation also provides partial/full scholarship funding, if available.
Below is an interview featuring former Board Director, Kathy Checchi, about the importance of the Fellows Program and her endowed scholarship fund. The Fellow that Kathy is supporting this year, Terza Lima-Neves, Professor of Political Science at Johnson C. Smith University, joins us as well.
If you believe we should target an organization in your community, or you know a woman leader that should be a Fellow, please contact Jessa Cooke at [email protected] She can also answer questions on how your Forum might engage in this opportunity or how you can endow a Fellows Program scholarship.

One year later, COVID-19 remains front and center in our lives. It continues to impact the ways we work and live and is still the center of conversation amongst our friends, families, colleagues, the media and our elected officials. Six months ago, Susan Silbermann participated in an IWF session where she shared how Pfizer was responding and what she had learned as the leader of the company’s Global COVID-19 Task Force. Now with a vaccine launched, Susan will join us again to reflect on where we are now, how we got here and where we are going with COVID vaccines.
On Wednesday, February 3, we held a special session - The COVID-19 Vaccine – How the Race Was Won and What Comes Next. Please see the recording below.Read more
