Asia Pacific Leadership Fellowship Program 2019
Established in 2000, the Asia Pacific Leadership Program brings together people who want to co-create the future as self-reflective, resilient agents. Using experiential, place-based learning with a focus on equity, cohorts of leaders practice leadership strategies in nurturing environments.
Currently celebrating its 18th anniversary, the APLP has created a network of 605 dynamic leaders in 45 countries who are helping to build a peaceful, prosperous and the just Asia Pacific community.
Who should apply?
Leaders who can successfully navigate change require creative vision and the capacity to chart and act upon that vision.
The APLP experience is designed to yield just these sorts of outcomes. Embracing and leading change takes time.
The APLP is designed as a 4-month blended program in order to maximize the depth and breadth of learning. The program grows from building an introductory base in the launch week in Asia to applied place-based leadership activities in home settings to the Hawaii residential experience.
Each phase of the program has a distinct purpose and connection to the whole. The APLP experience is first and foremost about change.
Together we engage critical processes of change affecting the region now and in the future. By stepping out of specific individual areas of expertise (for example by discipline or country) and developing new analytic and leadership approaches participants come to have changed perspectives.
New insights on regional processes are coupled with opportunities to test and develop one’s leadership capacity through experiential work with diverse co-participants.
The outcome of this process is an ability not only to cope with, or understand change, but to lead it.
