Leaders in Practice

As a complement to the WAPPP Research Fellowship, WAPPP hosts Leaders in Practice. Scholars and leaders in practice may be residential or visiting. WAPPP Leaders in Practice will have opportunities at HKS to strengthen gender dimensions of their work, as well as to enrich the HKS community by sharing their expertise and experience with students, faculty, fellows and staff. Leaders in Practice may be invited to share their work and insights in seminars and/or other public events. Leaders from the public, private and non-profit sectors are invited to apply to join us for a predetermined period of time ranging from a week to as long as a year.


Applicants for the Leaders in Practice Fellowship at the Women and Public Policy Program should submit one complete copy of the following items:

1. A cover letter with current email address, and phone number; please also list your desired dates for the fellowship (predetermined period of time ranging from a few days to as long as a semester).
2. A curriculum vitae.
