Science Center’s Chris Laing Selected as Eisenhower Fellow

Ten outstanding American mid-career leaders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors have been selected to participate in the first Zhi-Xing China Eisenhower Fellowships Program. The program builds on Eisenhower Fellowships’ nearly two decades of professional exchange programs with China aimed at advancing bilateral dialogue and understanding between the two nations. Since 1995, nearly 100 Chinese emerging leaders have traveled to the U.S. on individualized Eisenhower Fellowships to meet with the leading experts in their fields. The Zhi-Xing, or “learning and travel” program, is a fully-funded four-week professional and leadership development program that takes ascendant American leaders to China. Set to begin in October, the new program features intensive cultural immersion, group sessions with Chinese and U.S. experts and two weeks of individually-tailored travel and meetings in four to six Chinese cities. “This first group of Zhi-Xing Fellows is embarking on a unique, tailored experience to enhance their understanding and engagement with one of the world’s most important nations,” said George de Lama, President of Eisenhower Fellowships. “We hope these young American leaders will experience a transformational journey that can bring new perspectives, inspire new collaborations and build long-term relationships.” Click here to read more.
