21 Fellows from 12 Classes convene in Charleston, South Carolina
A judge recently confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals, a pediatric critical care physician, a human resources executive, a commercial real estate executive, a tech executive, and a nonprofit executive are just a few of the Liberty Fellows who convened for the new Continuing the Journey Seminar in Charleston.
From August 25 – 28, 2022, a cohort of 21 Fellows representing 12 different Fellowship Classes engaged in text-based dialogue and explored one another’s perspectives to strengthen the personal and professional dimensions of active leadership. Three moderators from the Aspen Global Leadership Network guided the dialogue: Liberty Fellowship’s Ann Marie Stieritz (’16), Co-Founder of the Central American Leadership Initiative Stace Lindsay, and Executive Director of Achieve Atlanta Tina Fernandez.
The new seminar is open to all Liberty Fellows who have completed their required 18-month seminar series and individual impact venture. The Continuing the Journey experience allows Fellows to re-engage in text-based dialogue and strengthen their personal and professional leadership as they continue on their lifelong leadership journeys.
Five additional Liberty Fellows briefly joined the group to discuss their ongoing leadership in varying issue areas that range from racial equity and economic mobility to growing public education opportunities in rural South Carolina:
- J.E.B. Wilson (‘20), Managing Partner, Cotton Hills Farm
- Kerri Forrest (‘18), Senior Program Director of Equity Centered Leadership and Philanthropy, MDC, Inc.
- Elizabeth Owen (‘19), Partner, Morton & Gettys, LLP
- David Lominack (’14), SC Market President, TD Bank
- Brooke Mueller (’23), Director of Government Relations and Public Affairs (VA, NC & SC), Walmart, Inc.
This seminar is the first of its kind for our existing Fellows who have been implementing what they learned from their initial seminar experience years ago, said President and CEO Ann Marie Stieritz (’16). As they continue their lifelong leadership commitment to South Carolina, Continuing the Journey is an opportunity for them to grow both personally and professionally, to create relationships with Fellows from other Classes and regions, and to support one another as peers and collaborators.
