Leaders Fellowship

Our new signature program, the CAPE Leaders Fellowship, is an incubator to equip the next generation of creative executives and talent representatives to break into the VP ranks. The Fellowship will be run by senior members of CAPE’s Board of Directors, and will feature high-level speakers and sessions to train participants in the art of communication, leadership, and pitching, among other skills.

In the AAPI culture, young adults commonly are trained to defer to authority and are not encouraged to become leaders. As executives and media leaders who have overcome these cultural barriers, we at CAPE recognize the unique responsibility and opportunity we have to share our experiences and teach the next generation.

The Fellowship is slated to launch in July 2017. Sessions will be held Monday evenings and Wednesday mornings from July 17, 2017 – August 7, 2017.
