  • Craft An Implementation Plan: Throughout the live engagement series, fellows will develop, revise and submit a COVID-19 recovery strategic plan.
  • Receive Individualized Mentoring: Participants with strong plans will be considered for a mentorship program to work 1:1 with experts in the field to further develop and implement their strategies and potentially publish their case studies. Final deliverables for the fellowship will be due December 1, 2022.
