What Fellows Receive

The Fellowship begins with an in-person convening at GLG’s headquarters in New York City, where Fellows join our learning community and learn how to use the GLG platform. During the convening, Fellows work with GLG to identify the top challenges facing their organizations and set learning objectives to meet those challenges.


Tailored learning opportunities include phone consultations with subject matter experts, in-person meetings, roundtable discussions, teleconferences, and workshops.

Strategic Support

Dedicated GLG Research Managers serve as thought partners for Fellows and their management teams. Research Managers design engagements that provide insight to inform strategy, address challenges, and help Fellows’ organizations continue to grow.


Fellows and their teams have access to GLG’s rich ongoing events offered throughout the year, in addition to custom learning engagements.
