Eli J. & Phyllis N. Segal Citizen Leadership Program

Upcoming Events

The Segal Program is proud to offer regular events and trainings for our Fellows and the larger Segal Network. Each event is a way for Fellows to discuss and prepare to take action around important issues, as well as a chance to connect with each other and our Founders and partners, as they move forward on their citizen leadership journey. Check out our recent events, as well.

2021 Segal Fellows in Action Panel


We would like to thank all of our 2021 Brandeis and Heller MPP Segal Fellows, our host site partners, and everyone who joined us for our 2021 Segal Fellows in Action Panel last week. We heard the inspiring stories of our Fellows Adam Jones, Andrea Tyree, Catherine Romero, Maria Aranibar, Mariela Martinez, Marissa Torelli, and Pierrce Holmes, on their summer internship and Segal Fellow experiences, as well as ways they leveraged their citizen leadership and the Segal Network to help solve some of our world’s most intractable problems and to grow individually and together.

Segal Fellows and staff discussing systemic racism and police brutality


Regular Virtual Segal Gatherings

The Segal Program hosts events monthly, alternating between bi-monthly Segal Convenings with guest speakers from inside and outside of the Segal Network and bi-monthly Fellow-Led Features, where Fellows talk with other Fellows about an item (book, movie, article, blog, podcast, etc.) that they've created or that has inspired their thinking.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Fellows have met even more frequently to connect, reengage with the Program, and create support systems during difficult times. We will post upcoming informal Fellow chat times here, when there are multiple weeks without another convening scheduled. 

Meeting of the Summit Planning Committee

During our formal and informal chats, conversations have created space for dialogue around issues of racism at all levels (individual through systemic), police brutality, and the importance of antiracist work, as well as how recent and ongoing issues and events, including the rise in Anti-Asian Racism, the killings of Rayshard Brooks, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, are impacting our Fellows are the larger world.

To learn more about the ways the Segal Program has continued these efforts and conversations please see our anti-racism update page.
