2019 Call for Applications: Culture of Health Leaders Program

Deadline: 20 February 2019

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is accepting applications for its Culture of Health Leaders program to offer leadership development for leaders from all sectors and is based on evidence, informed by experience, and grounded in principles of equity and social justice. These principles are the basis of everything participants experience throughout the program.

This structured three-year program is for any individual—from any walk of life (for-profit, nonprofit, government, or social enterprise)—who is highly motivated, ready, and open to learn, lead, and collaborate with organizations, communities, systems, and policymakers to build a Culture of Health in our nation. leaders come from the technology, education, housing, transportation, social sector, business, the arts, and countless other disciplines.

The Culture of Health Leaders curriculum and experience is designed to equip and support leaders through a process that helps them achieve mastery of self, relationships, environment, and change. By the end of the three years, leaders will apply the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion to create sustainable change in their communities, organizations, or systems.
