The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion is seek­ing nom­i­na­tions and appli­ca­tions for the twelfth class of its sig­na­ture Chil­dren and Fam­i­ly Fel­low­ship® — an inten­sive exec­u­tive lead­er­ship pro­gram, now in its third decade, designed to give more child- and fam­i­ly-serv­ing pro­fes­sion­als the con­fi­dence and com­pe­tence to lead major sys­tem reforms and com­mu­ni­ty change ini­tia­tives that get equi­table results.

Nom­i­na­tions must be sub­mit­ted no lat­er than Aug. 27, 2021. Nom­i­nees are then invit­ed to com­plete a full appli­ca­tion online, which must be sub­mit­ted by Sept. 10, 2021. Can­di­dates also are wel­come to apply direct­ly by the Sept. 10 dead­line with­out being nom­i­nat­ed. The 21-month Fel­low­ship pro­gram will begin in April 2022 and end in Jan­u­ary 2024.

We are look­ing for indi­vid­u­als who dis­play the fol­low­ing characteristics:

  • a min­i­mum of 10 years of diverse pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ence in the social sec­tor, with increas­ing lev­els of respon­si­bil­i­ty and author­i­ty serv­ing chil­dren and fam­i­lies (for exam­ple, direc­tors, deputies, pro­gram man­agers, depart­ment heads and executives);
  • a strong record of achieve­ment and career advance­ment, with sights on even high­er lev­els of influence;
  • a demon­strat­ed com­mit­ment to assist­ing com­mu­ni­ties that have been under­served, reduc­ing racial dis­par­i­ties and man­ag­ing a diverse workforce;
  • an under­stand­ing of how race, eth­nic­i­ty, class, gen­der and lan­guage affect ser­vice deliv­ery, pol­i­cy, prac­tice, advo­ca­cy and lead­er­ship decisions;
  • a com­mit­ment to achiev­ing equi­table oppor­tu­ni­ties for all chil­dren, youth and their fam­i­lies — most specif­i­cal­ly, those fac­ing the biggest obsta­cles to well-being — while work­ing close­ly with those most affect­ed; and
  • an open­ness to self-reflec­tion as part of per­son­al growth.
