Key Resources for 2022-2023 ELP Cohort

The Milbank Memorial Fund’s Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is a 10-month leadership development program for early and mid-career legislative and executive branch state and large-county government officials who are committed to bringing a health equity lens to their work to improve population health. The program will provide participants with opportunities to:

  • Develop practical, applied leadership skills and personal insights that will enhance their capacity to improve population health
  • Partner with colleagues from  states across the country, who have different life experiences, disciplinary expertise and orientation than their own
  • Expand their network of colleagues, both from within the cohort and broader Milbank State Leadership Network
  • Access and apply evidence, best practice, and experience to their work as state leaders and health policy decision makers

Convened by Milbank Memorial Fund in partnership with a nationally recognized expert in leadership development, ELP sessions will feature guest faculty who bring experience and insight into state policymaking. The Fund will invite up to 24 participants and cover all costs of sessions and materials, including three in-person meetings. Participants must be fully vaccinated, as defined by the CDC, no later than the first in-person meeting of the cohort.
