“Because of my Fellowship”

To celebrate 60 years of the Eisenhower Fellowship, alumni from across the programme are telling their stories of what Eisenhower has meant to them. You can read their stories on the Eisenhower website.

There is considerable European interest, with stories from Spanish, Turkish and Yugoslav/Slovenian fellows featured, plus a US fellow that visited Ireland. More stories will appear over this 60th year.

2012 USA Fellow Carol Hibbard, Director for Procurement Financial Analysis at Boeing, will be visiting Belgium in May. During her fellowship she will be looking at issues around women in leadership. We’re sure that the Belgium and EU fellows will give her an excellent welcome.

Happy New Year

All the best for 2012 to all Eisenhower Fellows, in Europe and beyond. May this be a year of many contacts amongst us all, with as many as possible recorded here!
