The Nexus Experience

The Vision 

NexusCity is an organization and network of established leaders that reflects the diversity of the NOLA region, and focuses on identifying emerging leaders and connecting them to opportunities.

Components of Fellowship

This is a one year Fellowship that will provide extensive board and leadership training.  The Nexus members provide guidance and connect Fellows to institutions in need of new and diverse talent for their boards.

Design of Fellowship

The initial area of opportunity for Fellows is in board governance. The primary goal of the Fellowship is to provide emerging leaders experience in institutional leadership management.

Intended Outcome

Beyond building a base of trained and talented community leaders, the Fellowship's secondary goal is to expose emerging leaders to the powerful networks comprised by the directors of the city’s numerous boards, including that of the Nexus itself.
