The Public Media CEO/COO Boot Camp is an intensive, seven month program for three classes of fellows over three years. The industry’s first CEO/COO Boot Camp will provide education and hands-on experiences in critical aspects of station knowledge and management.
The expected outcome of the program is to expose CEO/COO candidates to the core concepts, players and resources in these key verticals so that they have confidence & knowledge to apply for the positions, and when the Boot Camp ends, they know who and where to reach out to when they’re in the C-suite and need additional guidance. Media and leadership is in a constant state of change so the goal isn’t to teach “everything” but to encourage a cohort of leaders to become lifelong learners.
Target Audience: All fellows have been selected for the first cohort. While the program will focus on training women, a quarter of the seats in each class are held by men of color in our industry who want to pursue C-level positions
