Who will you meet?
The Executive Cohort Program is a new event format created in reaction to the isolation and adversity of the COVID-19 pandemic. Executive Cohorts provide participants a unique opportunity to cultivate new relationships with extraordinary, like-minded peers in an era when making new connections is nearly impossible.
Following an interview and onboarding process, 10 urban practitioners from a diversity of industries, geographies and sectors are carefully vetted and invited to form an Executive Cohort.
Executive Cohorts meet online once a week for 6 weeks. Meeting facilitation encourages genuine conversation and allows enough time and space to dig in to important topics.
Executive Cohort sessions follow Chatham House Rules. These private sessions enable participants to connect and share on a level that would be otherwise unachievable.
Executive Cohorts begin with a 90-minute initial session of introductions. In subsequent sessions, participants are paired 2-by-2 and featured in short, facilitated fireside chats, followed by group discussion.
Executive Cohort participants are expected to attend all sessions.
Session #1: Introductions / 90 minutes
Session #2: Fireside chat #1 / 60 minutes
Session #3: Fireside chat #2 / 60 minutes
Session #4: Fireside chat #3 / 60 minutes
Session #5: Fireside chat #4 / 60 minutes
Sessions #6: Fireside chat #5 / 60 minutes
“I cannot thank you enough for putting together the cohort program. Believe it or not, I believe it is even more beneficial than the connections we make at a conference.”
Participation in the Executive Cohort program is by invitation only. To express your interest in joining a Cohort, please complete this application.
