The Notley Leadership Network catalyzes leaders to break through social and private sector silos, discover more purpose and bend their life’s work towards impact. From CEOs to students, rising professionals to our youngest changemakers, selected individuals join our programs to grow as purposeful leaders and collaborate with a powerful network of people who are creating change across their local communities.

The Notley Leadership Network’s longest running program, The Notley Fellowship, convenes rising leaders across industries and equips them with the resources and connections necessary to elevate their community impact. Throughout the two-year program, Fellows engage in leadership training, skills development and social impact projects while building a strong network of changemakers, mentors and collaborators.

Executives in Residence

Executives in Residence are senior executives who join Notley for a short term residency to explore new horizons for creating impact in their industry while contributing their skills to support Notley’s mission. They join an incredible network of changemakers and have the chance to work on cutting edge social impact initiatives.

“Notley’s Executives in Residence program provided me the time, resources and connections to explore the social challenges that matter most to me and develop solutions that could drive significant change. I was able to apply my wealth of experience leading companies in a way that aligned to my values.”
