The Network of Korean-American Leaders (NetKAL) Fellowship Program is a unique educational forum for 1.5 and 2nd generation Korean-American leaders designed to enhance your leadership capabilities through professionally facilitated workshops, intensive peer discussion sessions and community projects.
A program of the Center for Asian-Pacific Leadership at the USC School of Social Work, Fellows admitted to NetKAL gain a solid foundation in today’s most progressive leadership practices and values while defining one’s own multi-faceted role as a Korean-American leader. The NetKAL Fellowship Program selects a professionally diverse group of 24 highly qualified individuals for the seventh cohort program (i.e. NetKAL VII), which runs from February 2013 to July 2013 in San Jose, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Workshops are designed to provide participants with the mindset and tools they need to achieve ambitious goals, build coalitions, communicate effectively and lead transformation. With an emphasis on networking and community empowerment, the program aims to increase the connectivity of Korean-American leaders and to create a critical network of high-potential Korean- American leaders that crosses political, economic, social and cultural boundaries, primed to take on larger roles in society. Applications are available online.
