The Ignite NextGen Summer Fellowship program is a six-week leadership training program designed to prepare young leaders (“college student, recent graduate, and young professional” range) by developing key skills and adapting their mindsets for success in both their lives and professional careers.
One of the highlights of this six-week program is the rare opportunity to connect with successful Korean American leaders from diverse backgrounds and fields. Through focused group coaching, webinars and panels with top leaders, and group discussions with peers, the IgniteNextGen Fellowship Program equips young leaders with the tools to navigate the rapidly-changing professional world and challenges posed by a disrupted economic and social landscape.
Led by our IgniteNextGen team of creative innovators and leaders, our fellowship program dives into subjects such as leadership, public speaking, team-building, communication, mental resilience, and confidence. In addition, our program will explore critical issues that the Korean and Asian American community often faces in the workplace, such as stereotyping, microaggressions, and more.
As young leaders, what can we do to shift the narrative around Asian Americans and build greater confidence as a leader to motivate us and others to move forward?
