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.

July: Taking Action Through & Beyond the 2024 Elections

Title, date and summary of July 30 Segal Discussion on Taking Action in 2024 Elections with photo of buttons saying "vote 2024"Tuesday, July 30, 2-3pm Eastern; virtual.

Segal Fellows, if your question is, “I’m worried about the future of US democracy/the 2024 elections… what are possible ways I can still have an impact?” then this is the session for you!

Hear from Segal Founders (Phyllis & Mora Segal) and Fellows (Anthony Afriyie, Damond Ford, David Duhalde, Jess Kent) who are working or volunteering with campaigns/election efforts or have done so in the past. Consider this a community “Problem of Practice,” where we’ll discuss the many ways you can dive in leading up to the 2024 elections, and how you can stay engaged past November.

Monthly RJAR LC Affinity/Caucus Group Gatherings

  • Black & African American Affinity Space: (meetings every third Tuesday of the month; contact Conveners Robyn Pratt or Le’Otis Boswell-Johnson, or Susie for more details)
  • "Robyn Pratt, a 2020 Segal Fellow, and Le’Otis Boswell Johnson, a 2018 Segal Fellow, co-lead the Segal Black and African American Affinity! As a member of the Black community, we welcome you to our Segal Fellowship Black and African American Affinity Space with open arms and hearts. This group was formed to build community, support each other, and discuss how our culture, background, and experiences can and should show up in our roles as well as inform and influence our work, in and out of the Segal Fellowship. We understand that some folks may be a part of the mixed race affinity space and we want to honor your black/aa identity, uplift your experience and background and invite you to join both this space and the mixed race space. You are welcome here.”

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, Anti-Black Violence, and police violence, 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.
