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.
The 2002-2003 Fellows will be officially introduced at the Drucker Foundation's annual leadership and management conference, Leadership Essentials: Charting Paths, Changing Lives, being held November 18-19 in Philadelphia, PA. Scheduled conference speakers include: Peter F. Drucker (via pre-recorded video), Frances Hesselbein, Alfred Babington-Johnson, Sally Helgesen, General Robert R. Ivany, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and Michael Useem.
