Prime Movers Malcolm Lazin, Michael Petit, and Ben Burkett at a 2008 fellowship event.

Through participation in our program, Prime Movers become part of a diverse peer network that fortifies their individual leadership roles. Prime Mover fellows convene several times a year to discuss common issues and challenges and to identify pathways for change.


Prime Mover Qualities

We are looking for leaders following in the footsteps of pioneers such as Susan B. Anthony, Cesar Chavez, and Martin Luther King, Jr.

What Fellows Do

Prime Movers engage in collective learning and reflection retreats; all while leading their respective movement.

Selecting Fellows

We use an invitation-only nomination process to identify inspiring leaders.

Grant Uses

Fellows use their grants in powerful ways. Some have hired executive coaches; others finished critical writing tasks.
