Eli J. & Phyllis N. Segal Citizen Leadership Program

Bi-Annual Segal Fellow Retreat

In response to feedback from Fellows, we will anticipate hosting our next Segal Fellow Retreat in the Fall of 2023!

While we're sad that COVID postponed what would have been our Fall 2021/2022 retreats, we're glad that so many of you said in your 2022 Annual Fellow Surveys that you would feel ready to gather again in Fall 2023, and we're glad that our Segal Racial Justice & Antiracism Learning Community has provided an opportunity to gather virtually each quarter, alongside our monthly convenings.

Thank you to everyone who joined us in 2019!

Over 60 Segal Fellows, Founders, and partners gathered together for the 2019 Segal Fellow Retreat, which included workshops on a variety of topics, team-building activities, action break out groups, and other opportunities to share and connect.
