The mission of the Eli J. & Phyllis N. Segal Citizen Leadership Program is to foster the next generation of citizen leaders. It was established to honor and continue the work of the late Eli Segal ’64, his wife Phyllis, and their commitment to developing new generations of leaders.

The Program is a constantly expanding, intergenerational constellation of citizen leaders working across all sectors, who give each other lifelong support as they devise solutions to society’s most intractable problems. It elevates citizen leadership and service as crucial to the health and well-being of our democracy and communities.

Segal Network Responses to COVID-19

In February, we met to discuss various Segal Network responses to the COVID pandemic. As Founder Phyllis Segal summarized, this group was an inspiring example of the many ways each of us can take action and the breadth of our Segal Network’s response to COVID-19. Thanks to Fellows Raquél Pérez and Imani Islam and Partners Innovation80 and Freedman Consulting for sharing their work.
