Thank you for your interest in ELP’s Pacific Regional Network Fellowship Program. This program is on a temporary pause, and we hope to resume the PRN Fellowship in 2024. We are in the process of seeking funding partners and facilities partners that will allow us to offer this program in a way that builds upon the strong foundation established by our outstanding inaugural PRN cohorts in 2019 and 2020. Our goal is that cost is not a barrier to anyone in traveling to our taking part in an ELP Fellowship program.
During this time of pause, ELP’s team is engaged in reviewing and updating our curriculum and content in order to best meet the needs of our communities across all our Fellowship programs. With the many ways that people’s lives have been shifting over the last few years and continue to change, our curriculum and staff must be ready to respond in meaningful ways. Like so many, we have worked hard to adapt and adjust as we have faced a pandemic, incredible drains on virtually every societal system, new evolutions of reckoning with racial and social justice in the U.S. and around the world, and the increasingly extreme impacts of climate change. Throughout this time, our staff, Fellows, and facilitators have challenged our program offerings to dig deeper in our exploration of leadership for a just and sustainable future. It’s very important to us that we give our Fellows a high quality experience– which to us means a program that is intentional, relevant, and responsive to the needs of our participants both in terms of content and in community building.
ELP is also undergoing some significant organizational change, including transition of staff and executive leadership in 2022. Along with updating our programs, in the time ahead we will be focused on rebuilding our team, aligning our internal operations with our core values, and of course remaining connected to our communities.
