Since our founding in 2011, Higher Heights has demanded the world invest in and uplift Black women leaders. In true form, we are answering our own call by elevating our investment through the inaugural cohort of this Fellowship program. 

We established this 7 month fellowship program as a way to highlight the expertise of Black women in senior civic leadership, while challenging each participant to serve their professional goals and commit to personal wellness.

This cohort truly crosses the spectrum. From leaders in STEM to social justice activists. From Pharmacists to Veterans. From entrepreneurs to elected leaders and policy analysts—we’ve curated a group of women that will no doubt bring their expertise and their authentic selves.

30 Black women have answered the call and we are proud to introduce you to our inaugural cohort of the Higher Heights Senior Civic Leadership Cohort.
