The 4th Cohort of Wexner Senior Leaders Has Arrived at Harvard

Posted on Monday, February 05, 2018

The 4th cohort of Wexner Senior Leaders is now at the Harvard Kennedy School for a month of intensive executive training, focused on collaborative change leadership.  The 43 cohort members join a network of 121 Senior Leaders who have completed the program over the past three years.

The Israeli public-sector leaders carefully selected for the program almost invariably belong to the top tier of management — those reporting directly to the head of the organization or ministry.  They are the professionals who make the day-to-day decisions that keep government working, and who are responsible for implementing government policy. 

The current cohort, just like previous ones, represents a broad spectrum of the public sector — from key government ministries responsible for the economy, defense, law enforcement and health, to government owned corporations, public utilities and local government.  The Wexner Senior Leader Network’s strength lies in the diversity of organizations represented within it.
