The Action Learning Fellowship is the flagship program of the Berrett-Koehler Foundation, that brings together thoughtful community builders with ideas and resources from the Berrett-Koehler community, to create a space for deep personal growth and collective learning.

Ideal fellows are innovative, open-minded problem-solvers, who are committed to grappling with the worlds’ most critical challenges and value working in collaborative environments. We are looking for people with a deep commitment to crafting community-focused solutions.
You are actively seeking the space to play with your deep inquiry around community as a vehicle for social transformation. You have built a community and want to experiment how to amplify and generate the transformation you know in your bones is possible. You are seeking to jam with others who, like you, have many questions and are okay with not having answers, but are committed to finding them through experimentation.
You want all of this and equally want to nourish and honor yourself and lean into self-transformation and social transformation, as you see them as two sides of redesigning our systems. We are a village of people seeking to cultivate a world that is more whole.

What did past Fellows say about the program?
This is an 8-month program. Because community-building and co-creation are important for the cohort, we expect all Fellows to attend all convenings (virtual and in-person events), and to support with co-facilitation throughout the Fellowship. Between November 2019 and June 2020, Fellows should plan for a total of 10-15 hours every month for convenings, personal learning and preparation, and reflection time.
To support cycles of collective learning and growing, the Berrett-Koehler Foundation will convene an optional virtual (online) event in May/June 2020 to complement the expected written reflections and report-backs from the Fellows about their journey and experience.
