Bentley’s Center for Women and Business and Governor Patrick Open Applications to Women's Leadership Fellowship

As part of Governor Patrick’s Women in the Workforce Initiative, Labor and Workforce Development Secretary Rachel Kaprielian today announced that applications are now open for at least 14 fellowship positions that have been created within the Executive Branch of state government. Fellows would serve in senior leadership positions for a year as part of the effort to grow the pipeline of women for careers that lead to executive offices and board rooms.

The Patrick administration is partnering with Bentley University and its Center for Women & Business to administer the program and engage fellows in leadership development and networking programs. Nearly 300 graduate students have already expressed an interest in applying for a fellowship. Click here to see a list of available positions and download the application. Applications are submitted to the recruiting manager for each individual position. The contact information is located within the job description document.

The paid, one-year fellowship couples a full-time management experience in state offices for women with a comprehensive leadership training program. The fellowship is targeted toward women in master's-level programs with an interest in executive leadership development. Graduate students can submit applications for the fellowships through May 30, 2014. Applicants will be screened and interviews conducted by the agencies in June, with selections to be announced by June 30, 2014.

For all questions about the Fellowship, please contact Jennifer James at Jennifer.james@state.ma.us.
