Emerging as a Global Leader Experience (EaGLE) Program

EaGLE is the career accelerator for mission oriented leaders that want to challenge public service norms. EaGLE believes that empowering disruptive young leaders from diverse backgrounds in national security and public service is the best way to confront the hardest challenges of our generation. EaGLE delivers on this vision by providing participants with experience applying innovative tools to enhance their professional development.

Over the course of several immersive sessions, participants gain experience with design thinking, lean startup methods, strengths based leadership, and professional networking strategies to help them to thrive when operating in complex environments. EaGLE alumni will also gain a diverse network and support system that encourages continued growth beyond the program.
