NEW YORK, July 23, 2001 -- The Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management has selected five social sector leaders to participate in the 2001-2002 Frances Hesselbein Community Innovation Fellows Program:
The Hesselbein Fellows Program was established in 1996 by the Drucker Foundation Board of Governors to celebrate the innovative accomplishments of the Foundation's founding President and current Chairman of the Board of Governors, Frances Hesselbein. The annual program recognizes the accomplishments and supports the professional development of social sector leaders who have a demonstrated record of leadership and entrepreneurial performance, and who are engaged in programs that demonstrate community innovation. During the year-long fellowship, Hesselbein Fellows are provided with intellectual resources, opportunities and guidance designed to encourage their vision of community innovation, enhance their leadership effectiveness, and support their pursuit of excellence in organizational and personal performance. Short biographies of the Fellows, details of the program, and conference information, can be found on the Drucker Foundation's Web site.
The 2001-2002 Fellows will be officially introduced at the Drucker Foundation's annual leadership and management conference, Leading for Innovation and Organizing for Results being held November 12-13 in Los Angeles, CA. Scheduled conference speakers include: Peter F. Drucker; Frances Hesselbein; Robert Cialdini; Gladys Styles Johnston; Rosabeth Moss Kanter; and Raul Yzaguirre.
