Liberty Fellowship seek nominees for Class of 2008

I recently had lunch with Liberty Fellowship Executive Director Jennie Johnson. The Liberty Fellowship is currently seeking nominations for the class of 2008, and in particular is seeking nominations of outstanding women in business. As a member of the inaugural class of 2006, I can attest that the Liberty Fellowship is a life changing experience. Click here for information about the nomination process.

The mission of the Liberty Fellowship is "to inspire enlightened, values-based leadership in South Carolina." Founder Hayne Hipp said ,"Our vision of values-based leadership is founded in the capacity to do what it takes to lead a life that is good, useful, worthy, and meaningful. It necessitates confronting one’s human nature, and cultivating one’s humanity to become more self-aware, more self-correcting and more self-fulfilling... Our goal is that in the very near future, we need look no further than South Carolina’s leadership to understand the meaning of values-based leadership."

Nomination Criteria

Liberty Fellowship nominees must meet the following criteria to be considered for candidacy:

* Executives/professionals between the ages of 25 and 45 who have achieved success in their fields;

* Men and women who have demonstrated their potential for leadership at the highest levels of corporate and civic responsibility;

* Possessed of a breadth of experience and level of maturity that will enable them to contribute effectively to the seminar experience; as well as inherent intellectual curiosity and capability;

* From diverse backgrounds in terms of ethnicity, race and gender;

* In charge of South Carolina companies, business units or entities -- or comparable professional positions -- in either the private, nonprofit or public sectors.
