As we select our leaders, we carefully consider the composition of the overall cohort in terms of geographic location, ethnicity, gender, educational and employment background, and leadership experience to ensure that the selected leaders have an opportunity for a rich, diverse, and intergenerational experience. While we welcome applications from individuals who are in various stages of their leadership journey, we strongly encourage leaders to apply who expect to actively work on building a Culture of Health and have a long-term goal of advancing racial equity throughout their careers and lives.
