Alumni Council Leadership
In the spring of 2017, the Gardner Fellowship convened an Alumni event that brought together the 2017-2018 Gardner Fellows and those from previous classes. The event featured panels of Gardner Alum on networking, graduate programs, law, business, non-profit organizations, and other post-graduate careers, and was a huge success. Since then, the spring Alumni Event has become an annual part of the Gardner Fellowship.
In addition, the program has developed an Alumni Council, which runs the annual Alumni Event, and has also developed a mentoring program to connect current Gardner Fellows with Gardner Alumni.
