At Pahara, we want to realize the power of our incredible network and catalyze Fellow-driven, systems changing action. We hope that by amplifying Fellows’ work, connecting you to one another, and convening on relevant topics, we will generate what we’re calling “Network Effect”.


Through our 2021 Network survey, Fellows shared how they wanted to leverage the Pahara network and address the top leadership needs in our field. 


Below are the top three ways Fellows want to leverage the Pahara network: 

Thought Partnership

Expand Network

Share Resources

We also learned about the top leadership needs in our field. To meet your desire to leverage the Pahara network and our community’s top leadership needs, we’re piloting a new offering: Pahara Fellow Consultancies.


  • Convene with new Fellows, beyond your cohort, on timely and relevant topics of interest

  • Gain thought partnership from the confidential brain trust of values-aligned leaders in our sector

  • Provide support and resources to other leaders in our Network

  • Meet other values-aligned leaders who are wrestling with similar leadership problems of practice


Date & Time:

Thursday, December 2nd, 2021

12 pm - 3:30 pm ET


You are likely already familiar with consultancies from your Fellowship. Each consultancy will be focused on a specific topic and include one “presenter” and a group of “peer consultants”. The “presenter” will prepare a problem of practice and question related to the group’s topic. During the consultancy, the “presenter” will share this question and problem of practice with the group. The “peer consultants” will then have time to discuss the question together while the “presenter” listens. After the group discussion, the “presenter” will have an opportunity to share takeaways and reflections.

You will have an opportunity to participate in 1-2 peer consultancy sessions focused on a topic.

For this first pilot, we selected topics based on common leadership needs expressed in the 2021 Network Survey. 

They are as follows:

  • Board management

  • Growth & scaling

  • Leading schools during a pandemic

  • Succession planning

  • Topics related to first time CEO


What if I want to present?

Please choose your topic in the expression of interest form. Presenters will have an opportunity to prep with the Pahara team November 1-12, 2021. Pahara will work with you to schedule your prep time.

I want to join more than one topic, may I?

For our first pilot, we will group Fellows according to one topic. Please share your top areas of interest in the expression of interest form.

I want to present on another topic not listed, may I?

For our first pilot, we’re testing with a shorter list of topics based on our Network’s top needs; however, if there is an additional topic of interest, please share in the expression of interest form and we will be in touch. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Lizzie at if you want support 1:1.

Select your consultancy topic and register by October 22nd:
