Professional Development

2016 MPP Segal Fellows Dan McConvey and Brie McLemore, and 2013 Brandeis Segal Fellow Jenn Recinos networking at 2016 Segal Fellow Retreat

Along with having lifetime access to the Program's ever-expanding Segal Network, Segal Fellows also have access to resources from the Segal Program and information from Founders and partners regarding upcoming job opportunities. 


Fellows can still sign up to use annual professional development funds from the Segal Program to sign up for The BeIMPACTFUL Program, which works to inspire and guide professionals to elevate their communication skills and amplify their power of influence. Anita Yip (2012 AC Alums Segal Fellow) took part in the program this month and shared about her #segalfellowsget:

"Every chance I have to learn more and better understand myself is a gift, and the BeIMPACTFUL Program's detailed assessment not only shines a mirror to my behavior and values but also provides ideas for being more effective and staying more motivated."
-Anita Yip (2012 AC Alums Segal Fellow)

To sign up for the free-to-you program, just email Ilhiana at, and identify yourself as a Segal Fellow signing up for the tailored BeIMPACTFUL Program.
