Fast Forward: Anita Patel & the Bush Fellowship

Monday, August 15, 2016

The Bush Foundation will be accepting applications for the 2017 Bush Fellowship from August 30th through September 29th. So Bush Leadership Programs Director Anita Patel sits down with MCF to talk through the goals of the fellowship, share ideas on how to approach applying and she talks about the work that's been coming from current and past fellows.

As Leadership Programs Director, Anita works with a wonderful team to equip, inspire and connect leaders in order to strengthen our region. She brings a significant record of accomplishments to the Foundation, including ten years of developing a wide-range of leadership and inclusion programs as the vice president for racial justice and public policy at the YWCA of Minneapolis.

As someone who grew up in greater Minnesota and went to high school in Granite Falls, Patel believes in the talent that lies all across the Bush Foundation region and is excited to invest in the success of our communities.
