Deadline: 3 December, 2018
The Practitioner Residency is for senior-level policymakers, nonprofit leaders, journalists, private sector leaders and public advocates with ten or more years of leadership experience in a variety of fields and sectors.
The Center has a strong interest in proposals that align with The Rockefeller Foundation’s efforts to promote the well-being of humanity, particularly through issues that have a direct impact on the lives of poor and vulnerable populations around the world. These issues include but are not limited to health, economic opportunity and jobs, urban resiliency, food and agriculture, clean energy, the field of philanthropy, and innovation for development.
Practitioner residencies have included leaders developing new strategic plans, determining shifts in their own careers or the paths of their organizations, or life-long social sector practitioners reflecting on their careers and distilling insights and guidance to inform a variety of audiences.
In selecting practitioners, they look for individuals who have had successful careers in senior leadership positions and are transitioning to new roles or capturing knowledge and insights from their extensive experience; individuals who are actively engaged in leading major change in the world through their current positions (NGOs, multi-lateral institutions, the private sector, government officials, etc.); and emerging leaders with demonstrable success and upward trajectories in their respective fields.
