Rodel Receives Rockefeller Brothers Fund Grant

The Rodel Institute is pleased to announce that it has received a grant from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund (RBF) to support its new Federal Executive Fellowship.

The Rodel Federal Executive Fellowship is an intellectual and leadership professional development fellowship for senior-level career civil servants across the federal government’s executive branch agencies. The program features a series of three multi-day seminars led by expert moderators. The Fellows study and discuss challenging texts on leadership and innovation in large organizations, the nature of democracies, emerging technologies, the American economy, and the changing geopolitical landscape. They also engage in practical, relevant leadership workshops focused on promoting innovation within the context of large government bureaucracies.

The inaugural cohort consists of 24 exceptional members of the Senior Executive Service (SES), Senior Foreign Service (SFS), GS-15’s, and equivalent positions from across the federal government. The 2023 class represents 18 different agencies, including the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Science Foundation. The class will meet for their first seminar later this month. To view the full list of Fellows in the inaugural cohort, click here.

Rodel is grateful to RBF for its generous support and looks forward to launching this groundbreaking program.
