Note: Candidates must commit to submitting a post for the AAJA website at the end of their training experience that highlights how the fellowship advanced them along their career path.

Dinah Eng, contributing writer for Fortune Magazine, is the founding director of AAJA’s Executive Leadership Program. She headed the establishment of ELP in 1995 when she was AAJA president. Since then, more than 500 AAJA members have graduated from the program with surveys showing that 55 percent of graduates receive at least one promotion at their company or at a new company after completing ELP.
