ALF Senior Fellows

ALF Fellows and Senior Fellows number more than 4,500 nationwide. In Houston, they have created a network that brings together a broad cross-section of leaders committed to building a stronger community.  To date, we have now graduated forty-one General Fellows classes and eighteen Sector classes (with approximately twenty-five diverse leaders each) – five in health care, five in public education, five in criminal justice, two in community development and one in workforce development.  Fellows are selected by a committee composed of former participants in the program who are charged with recruiting a class that truly reflects the diversity of Greater Houston and who show outstanding leadership and potential, as evidenced by:

  • their achievement of positions of significant responsibility and leadership, both at work and in the community,
  • integrity,
  • professional stature, showing excellence in or contributions made to their professional or occupational field, and
  • willingness to challenge their own assumptions and increase their understanding and awareness of others.

These Fellows are drawn from the arts, nonprofits, corporations, government and politics, media, education, the professions, philanthropy and religion, and are diverse along many dimensions.  ALF Fellows apply their leadership acumen and honed skills in major corporations and small businesses, in elected and appointed positions at the local, state and national level, and in religious, cultural, and other nonprofit organizations.
