In partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies, we are pleased to share a call for applications for the Bloomberg Innovation Delivery Fellowship. This exciting new opportunity is for early-tenure public service professionals (alumni of graduate degrees in public policy or administration who have at least two years of work experience) who have demonstrated exceptional leadership potential.
We invite you to share this announcement with your networks and encourage the talented emerging leaders you know to submit their applications by November 15, 2011.
Bloomberg Philanthropies recently launched a three-year initiative to fund Innovation Delivery Teams in five cities – Atlanta, Chicago, Louisville, Memphis, and New Orleans. Through this model, teams of high performers help mayors develop and deliver powerful solutions to major urban challenges. The fellowship, managed by RCLA, will recruit five early-tenure professionals who aspire to leadership careers in public service to support the Innovation Delivery Teams.
Each fellow will serve a full-time, two-year commitment in one of the five cities, adding value by supporting city-specific strategies, documenting progress in all phases of the innovation and delivery process, and implementing data collection systems and analysis that accelerate progress and elevate best practices in government innovation.
The program provides fellows a unique understanding of public sector innovation and delivery strategies coupled with access to senior leaders in municipal government and the opportunity to be part of a groundbreaking team model that brings real change to one of the selected American cities.
