The Massachusetts Women’s Leadership Fellowships

The Women’s Leadership Fellowship program offers female graduate students who have completed their degree requirements a position with managerial and leadership development activities distinct from other full-time positions.

The Fellowship Positions is supported by the Executive Office or agency hosting the Fellow and has been developed to provide the Fellow with employment experience in positions that meet the program goals of:

  • Access—Meaningful and regular engagement with senior agency leaders
  • Impact—Ability to work on and influence projects of key strategic importance to the agency’s mission and goals
  • Leadership—A leadership development experience that builds on the graduate’s  skill sets

Governor Patrick announced the first class of Women's Leadership fellow on September 30th, 2014.  Fourteen fellowships have been created in Governor Patrick's cabinet and quasi-agencies.
