The Bleeker Fellowship is a one-of-a-kind growth experience for exceptional leaders. We surround talented people with the knowledge, teachers, champions and opportunities needed to thrive in any environment. And we do it all at no cost.

We handed out our first Fellowship awards in 2016 and have continued supporting Fellowship cohorts every year since. Our first Fellowship cohort of 2019 will support ten creative leaders who are committed to driving social impact through their work.

I couldn’t imagine what my year would have been like without the Bleeker Fellowship.

The Bleeker Fellowship offers elusive talent the unique opportunity to build community with a professional peer group who are leading exciting initiatives across different companies.

We support Fellows with our team of exceptional Bleeker Thinking Partners (like executive coaches, but with a modern approach). We equip Fellows with the tools to unlock explosive career growth. And we surround them with a diverse and thriving learning community post-Fellowship, through Bleeker Network events and support groups.

Thanks to Bleeker I have direct access to some of the most creative, talented, thoughtful and driven people on the planet.
