The most important thing for candidates to look in terms of what we look for is the Selection Criteria. Additionally, we look for a candidate who clearly articulates why they need this program and how they can help the other women in the class.
The unifying theme amongst our candidates regardless of industry, ethnicity, age or geography is that they are all leaders. Each is in a position where she is leading others and has the opportunity to grow. In addition, our Selection Committee looks at what each candidate would bring to the fellowship class in terms of skills and experience.
